Dy's Take

Mother Was a Gunner’s Mate: WWII in the WAVES by Josette Dermody Wingo

Filed under: ChickLit,NonFiction — Dy @ 19:38

I enjoyed this, but probably because my grandmother was a WAVE and I really wanted to get a look into the mindset of these girls in a world at war.  They were so much funnier, innocent yet wordly, so much more than history books and Rosie the Riveter posters indicate.

Had some slow spots, narratively speakling, but it’s nonfic, so you kind of expect it.
