What I would change:
I would take out Patsy's death.
Why I recommend this book:
It is very realistic with a believable plot (not far fetched and information about the war is accurate)

You instantly get attached to characters (like Patsy)
Wrote a book called "Mare's War"- similar to "Flygirl"

Both authors have moved around a lot

Both authors have done many different things throughout their life
