Review: Among the Red Stars

30122938 Among the Red Stars by Gwen C. Katz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

World War Two has shattered Valka’s homeland of Russia, and Valka is determined to help the effort. She knows her skills as a pilot rival the best of the men, so when an all-female aviation group forms, Valka is the first to sign up.

Flying has always meant freedom and exhilaration for Valka, but dropping bombs on German soldiers from a fragile canvas biplane is no joyride. The war is taking its toll on everyone, including the boy Valka grew up with, who is fighting for his life on the front lines.

As the war intensifies and those around her fall, Valka must decide how much she is willing to risk to defend the skies she once called home.

Inspired by the true story of the airwomen the Nazis called Night Witches, Gwen C. Katz weaves a tale of strength and sacrifice, learning to fight for yourself, and the perils of a world at war.

I loved this story! It's about Pasha and Valka during WWII. I've always been fascinated with girls and women like Valka throughout history, fighting for change. I loved seeing the story from her point of view and enjoyed the history woven throughout. Well written, complex characters, and plenty of action with a dash of romance and loss!
