Fly Girls for Kids

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has now published a young reader edition of the bestselling FLY GIRLS. And Keith is really excited about it.

“We adapted it for 8- to 12-year-olds, and I hope it inspires a new generation of pioneers—both girls and boys.

“I hope girls recognize that it wasn't just a single long-shot, once-in-a-lifetime woman (Amelia Earhart) who dreamed big dreams, made daring flights, and broke barriers in the sky in the 1920s and '30s; it was a whole squadron of them, flying together, fighting together.

“And as the father of sons, I hope boys read this book and recognize that girls can be just as tough, just as smart, and just as strong as they are—or more. Heroism is not gender-specific. That's the lesson of FLY GIRLS.” - KEITH O’BRIEN, February 2019
