Winner, 2019 Outstanding Work of Creative Non-Fiction
Children's Literature Council of Southern California

"the book provides important context for kids to understand the lengths that women had to go to in order to gain acceptance in the military."--American Scientist

"Risking their lives countless times in feats of incredible bravery, the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) of the Second World War are honored in this beautifully illustrated and inherently fascinating story based on actual events and real people. Skyward is unreservedly recommended for family, school, and community library collections."--Midwest Book Review

"Deng's graphics vary from striking compositions reminiscent of WWII-era posters to dramatic views of soaring planes under enemy fire."--Publishers Weekly
