By Nancy Bo Flood
Lexile Level 590
Soldier Sister, Fly Home reveres the power of family, community and nature. Not one to shy away from truth, Nancy Bo Flood does not sugar coat life or death. Instead, Flood shows readers, through her main character thirteen-year-old Tess, that we always have the choice to “walk in beauty” no matter what happens in our lives through the powerful process of acceptance. This book will appeal to readers who find themselves trying to meld two different identities together—racial identities, geographic identities, or even the “simple” struggle of who we are at home versus who we are out in the public.
