It honestly does not come to a surprise that I loved Black Dove White Raven so much I mean after Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire there was no way I wasn't going to love this other historical fiction masterpieceOh boy where do I start Let's see Well this particular story takes place mainly in Ethiopia where things are getting and tense with Italy a country that takes pride in attempting to colonize the last self governed African country in other words invade them But let's take a few steps back to when Teo and Emilia come into playTeo and Emilia are born to the original Black Dove and White Raven Teo's mother Delia and Emilia's mother Rhoda Both are amazing stunt airplane flyers; performing acrobatic acts in the sky But after a tragic accident that leaves Teo motherless Rhoda takes him in and then promises both him and Emilia that they will fulfill Delia's dream of moving to Ethiopia Teo's homelandBut with all of Wein's works things take a turn for the worse War starts Emilia and Teo remain stuck in Ethiopia their mother refuses to teach them how to fly But even so Emilia and Teo still hang on and they become the second generation of Black Dove and White Raven AND MY HEART Even though at first they were just drawing comics and making up stories you could see how they portrayed themselves through their own characters Black Dove and White Raven so well Teo just so badly wanted to remain invisible in America and now that he's finally in Ethiopia he can Emilia is now the one who stands out but she still aspires to be the master of disguise that White Raven is in the comicsCan't handle them my babiesCharacter development is gold Absolute perfection I was incredibly impressed with the way Emilia overcame all her fears and became her version of White Raven and not just simply imitating her mother Even though the story is narrated through both of Emilia and Teo's flight logs the majority of it is from the perspective of EmiliaDid I mention how badly I want to own a small plane now because of all of these books I've read by Elizabeth Wein Well I want one BUT NOT LIKE THIS HAHAH OH GODThe only reason this isn't getting the full 5 stars from me is just because it didn't have as many feels as her other books I know it's not fair to compare books by the same author but I have high expectations haha I mean I love love LOVE Emilia and Teo and would love to spend time with them but I definitely felt with Code Name Verity and also Rose Under Fire But man this novel was something I'm kind of upset I haven't seen many reviews for this Come on nowI worship Elizabeth Wein Write please Yes Thanks
