Bonds she forms with her fellow pilots reignite a spark of hope in the face war and when James goes missing in action give Audrey the strength to cross the front lines and fight not only for her country but for the love she holds so dearShining a light on a little known piece of history The Flight Girls is a sweeping portrayal of women's fearlessness love and the power of friendship to make us soar My thanks to NetGalley and MIRA for sending me an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own and are not influenced by the publisher I’ll start this out by freely admitting that I seem to be in the minority opinion on this one I read a lot of rave reviews and went in with super high hopes ready for a WWII story with a lot of substance and a strong interesting female protagonist What I got felt fluffy romance set against a dark backdropThe book definitely plays lip service to the idea of a strong female lead but it doesn’t really feel like it goes beyond that Audrey is not like other girls because she likes to fly planes and doesn’t want to get married and have babies The only reason she doesn’t want to get married and have babies by the way seems to be because it’d be nearly impossible to find a husband who would “allow” her to keep flying I think this really gets at the heart of my issue with Audrey that her love of flight really felt like her singular defining character trait She never starting feeling like a person to me I love that she had an unconventional passion for a woman of the time but that’s not enough on its own to make her an interesting characterAnother reviewer on Goodreads also pointed out some anachronisms in the novel This truly isn’t something that bothers me as a reader barring something ridiculous like if Audrey were to suddenly pull out a flip phone but for readers who are super into the accuracy of their history it’s bound to ruffle some feathersThe romance while it took up a bigger part of the story than I would have liked was fine I liked that Audrey found someone who shared her passion and there seemed to be a huge amount of respect between the two of them especially considering the normal power dynamics of a relationship in the time period This felt healthy and sweet if a bit predictable although what romance isn’t? My only real ualm with the romance aspect of the book was that I’m not a huge fan of the basic concept of the story which was “girl who adamantly never wants to get married discovers she just hasn’t met the right man yet” I think The Flight Girls will appeal to romance fans far than historical fiction fans which seems odd given the premise and marketing of the bookThe Flight Girls is a story with a lot of potential that while it missed the mark for me personally seems to be a huge hit with a lot of readers Pick this up if you’re in the mood a light read but don’t expect hard hitting historical fiction that makes you think This is Noelle Salazar’s debut novel and I do think she has tons of potential I’m excited to see what she writes nextYou can read all of my reviews on my blog Jenna BookishFacebook | Instagram | Tumblr
