Philbrick's latest historical fiction, set in 1920s Maine, is brought to life by the amazing Kirby Heyborne. Davy and his sister, Jo, orphaned by their mother's death, are rescued for the summer by cousin Ruthie Reynard, a famous aviatrix who gives them jobs and a home in her flying circus. As delivered by Heyborne, 12-year-old Davy's voice is nervous as he worries about his and his sister's future and Jo's dream of performing in the circus. Heyborne also captures Ruthie's kindness as she gives the kids a home. The flying circus's announcer bellows enthusiastically, building suspense for the amazing feats performed high in the sky. The voices of the KKK are hate-filled as they attack immigrants. The author's note, narrated by Philbrick, gives important historical context to the story. N.E.M.
