Reviews
Praise for Night Witches
Lasky shines when describing the Witches' bombing missions and amplifies the suspense
when Valya is shot down behind enemy lines. The daring young women are all dynamically well rounded, particularly Valya, who oscillates between caring for and competing with her sister. Perhaps most thrilling of all is that the Night Witches were a real, all-women regiment, a fact that might encourage young readers to seek out the history of these daredevil heroes. --Booklist
A rarely told story of sisterhood, passion, and survival during World War II . . . a fast-paced slice of history for younger teens. -- Kirkus Reviews
