Бегство от безопасности

Описание:

Ida Mae Jones dreams of fl ight. Her daddy was a pilot and being black didn?t stop him from fulfilling his dreams. But her daddy?s gone now, and being a woman, and being black, are two strikes against her. When America enters the war with Germany and Japan, the Army creates the WASP, the Women?s Airforce Service Pilots?and Ida suddenly sees a way to fl y as well as do something signifi cant to help her brother stationed in the Pacific. But even the WASP won?t accept her as a black woman, forcing Ida Mae to make a difficult choice of ?passing,? of pretending to be white to be accepted into the program. Hiding one?s racial heritage, denying one?s family, denying one?s self is a heavy burden. And while Ida Mae chases her dream, she must also decide who it is she really wants to be.
