Lena used to be able to talk about anything, anytime with her best friend Kim – school, other friends, hobbies, love, boys… But since Kim moved away, everything’s just boring and tedious – until Lena stumbles across gliding and dives in head first! The airfield is a new world for Lena: freedom, independence, endeavour, achievement, belonging to the airfield-family… and then there’s Maxl… Lena’s heart beats faster whenever he turns up. Hopefully she won’t crash-land! And how does a girl find a new best friend? Fly with Lena and share her exciting times at the airfield. A book for exceptional girls with a yearning for adventure!
Just go to any American flying club (or French, or almost any other nation's) - it is unlikely that more than 5% of the membership is females. Well, that would still earn five stars for the book.
But then Judith Spörl, like a typical socialist realist of the current age does her duty in the name of political correctness... (No, I am not mixing metaphors. Both terms have a Soviet origin. So, a socialist realist of the current day must praise, instead of the Great Stalin, the current sacred beliefs of the Left). Right at the beginning we learn that Lena's parents are not married, but have "partners". So, there I had to subtract two stars. I guess they just must teach the young to see how much better it s to have partners, rather than being married (well, of course not if they are the same gender. Than it is OK).
In that respect it is propaganda. But, repeat, the flying is good.
