Reviews

"Sisters in Arms is heartwarming but fierce, a novel brimming with camaraderie and fire, starring women you'd love to make your friends. Prickly, musical Grace and bubbly, privileged Eliza may not make the most natural allies, but it's fight or die when they're thrown together in the Army's first class of female officers--and the first Black women allowed to serve their country in World War II.... Kaia Alderson's debut is a triumph!" -- Kate Quinn

"Based on the true story of the 6888th Postal Battalion, Sisters in Arms gives readers an inside look at the racial injustices and rigors of wartime that the women battled. Alderson sweeps readers in with Grace and Eliza's personal journeys through a little-known portion of our army's history. Themes of female friendship, bravery, and resilience radiate from the pages of this magnificent novel." -- Booklist, starred review

"Grace Steele and Eliza Jones are among the first Black women in the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps, defying their families to enlist and facing even more racism than before when they put on their hard-earned uniforms. Unflinching, at times brutal, this novel pulls no punches while delivering a richly textured and unforgettable story of determination, courage, and friendship." -- Janie Chang, author of The Library of Legends, on Sisters in Arms

"Alderson impresses with her account of trailblazing Black characters who battle racism and misogyny. The adventures of the Six Triple Eight will captivate readers." -- Publishers Weekly on Sisters in Arms

"Calls long overdue attention to the Black women veterans of World War II." -- Kirkus Reviews on Sisters in Arms
