"Hilary McKay is incomparable, a storytelling wizard at the height of her power - and this book is a time machine, transporting you back to 1940. I'm so convinced that McKay's fledgling swallows are based on her own experience that I find it hard to believe she hasn't also soared in combat or marched into battle herself."--Elizabeth Wein, author of Code Name Verity
"A triumph."-- "Philip Pullman, bestselling author of the His Dark Materials saga"
** "Stirring and unforgettable." -- "Kirkus Reviews, starred review"
"Profound and heartening."-- "Booklist"
* "Precise, evocative this a persistent, vivid freshness, but even more fresh and compelling is McKay's compassionate, sometimes humorous, take on human character and her understanding of youthful feelings."--Horn Book, starred review
