From School Library Journal
"There are a number of biographies of women pilots, and a few books about Women Airforce Pilots (WASP), including a novel for older readers, Sherri L. Smith's Flygirl (2009). This particularly well-crafted picture book for middle grades comes to the subject through Maggie Gee, a young girl with a dream....Based on interviews with Gee, this has a lovely, personal feel to it."
Review, Publishers Weekly:
"A triumphant story of determination."
Review, San Francisco Chronicle:
"The acrylic and colored-pencil art warmly emphasizes changing skies and layers of story, especially those about the lofty goals and indomitable grit that characterize Gee's life."
Review, Kirkus Reviews:
"An inspirational tale of an inspirational woman.
Review, School Library Journal:
"Rendered in acrylics and colored pencil, the colorful double-page illustrations are filled with detail and vibrantly depict the settings and events… This story should serve as inspiration for children that they can achieve whatever they put their minds to."
