Summary
1930. Birdie William's life has crashed along with the stock market. Her father's bank has failed, and he's disappeared along with his Jenny biplane. When she sees a leaflet for a barnstorming circus with a picture of Dad's plane on it, she goes to Coney Island in search of answers. The barnstorming circus has lady pilots, daredevil stuntmen, fire-spinners, and wing walkers. Birdie is instantly enchanted-- especially with a girl pilot named June. Clues suggest her father has gone to Chicago, so she joins the traveling circus doing what she does best: putting on a convincing act and insisting on being star of the show. -- adapted from jacket
