Judy Stanton (04/18/13): It's not often that you find a book about the relationship beween a grandfather and granddaughter. Wingshooters explores that unique bond in a small Wisconsin town in the 70s, where the all white community doesn't take kindly to outsiders. The story is told through the eyes of Michelle, a child of an American father and Japanese mother, who leave her in the care of her grandparents. Although Charlie is uncomfortable with her breeding, he becomes her rock, her ally, her defender. Yet, when a black family moves to town, he's not able to equate their experience with what he has seen his "Mikey" endure. The book explores the good, the bad and the ugly in relationshiups in families, with friends and in communities. It is warm, heartfelt and compelling, well written and filled with emotion. No happy endings here, but good, thoughtful reading.
