Sweet Skies is an inspiring story about friendship, loss and survival in a ruined city. Author Robin Scott-Elliot tells ReadingZone how his love of history, his family's links with Berlin, and a story about a kindly American pilot, helped inspire him to write it. 

Three teenagers, Otto, Karl and Ilse, have found each other in the ravaged and divided city of Berlin; the city is under siege by the Russians, and American pilots are bringing in much-needed supplies. Otto has a dream; to fly to America and to train as a pilot, and he sees a way to help make his dream come true, but at what cost?
