American Ace

Marilyn Nelson

While greiving his grandmother’s death, Connor discovers that he isn’t all Italian like he thought—he’s actually a fourth African American, and his grandfather he never about knew was a pilot in World War Two, a Tuskeegee Airman. With barely any clues about who his real grandfather was, he sets out to find more. A great novel, told in verse.
