Skyward, Book 2
All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot and proving herself a hero like her father. At last she made it to the sky and beyond, but the truths she learned there were crushing. The rumors of her father's cowardice are true--he deserted his Flight during battle against the Krell. Worse, though, he turned against his team and attacked them.
Spensa is sure that there's more to the story. Answers Spensa is determined to find out, but each one she discovers reveals a dozen new questions. But Spensa also discovered a few things about herself--and she'll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.
