American Ace

After the death of Connor's grandmother, Connor's dad finds out that the person he thought was his father, was not.  His mother, Connor's grandmother had a baby with an American Ace.  She left Connor's dad a ring and a mystery.  As the story, told in poetic narrative, unfolds Connor's dad finds out that his father was a Tuskegee Airman - making him half African American which is a shock to a man who thought he was half Italian and half Irish.

I felt the story was pretty good but a few references put it out of range for my students.
