A really interesting look at identity and how our history shapes our understanding of our lives. I particularly loved the inclusion of historical photos, along with the fictional parts of the narrative. Solid choice for history fans!

I liked the topic of the book and learned something, since I'd never heard of the Tuskegee airmen before. The "verse" wasn't really verse though so the actual writing wasn't that great.
