Black Dove White Raven YA
This book is so awesome, I can not say enough about it. The characters are so real and believable, your cheer for them when something good happens and you cry with them when things go wrong. At times I lost myself in the book and felt like I was in the cockpit of the Romeo with them, helping, or at other times giving Teo or Em a pep talk when it was needed, kind of like being their third sibling. We keep saying we need diverse books, well this one fits in many diverse categories. it is one powerfully strong book and Elizabeth Wein doesn't ever back down from some of the more touchy and sensitive parts of war but portrays them well, and also truthfully and fairly, so I would hope we never forget and repeat these atrocities inflicted in our past.
This is a great book and I hope everyone else enjoys it just as much as I did.
