What my book is about:
Ida Mae Jones has a big dream to fly. Her dad has been flying and has his license and own plane. After he passed away she wanted to follow in his footsteps.

She is a colored women but since her father was white and mother was black she has more of her daddy’s side so she passes as a white woman.

A part of the book that really stands out for me:
