Seized by the Sun introduces teens to the remarkable life of Gertrude “Tommy” Tompkins, who overcame many challenges to find her passion in flying. She became one of 126 elite women chosen to pilot World War II fighter planes for the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs). Her dissappearance remains a mystery and no crash site was ever found. The result of sixteen years of research and interviews, Seized by the Sun is an invaluable addition to any student’s or history buff’s bookshelf.
