Yona Zeldis McDonough is the author of seven novels and dozens of novels for children. She is also the editor of two essay collections and her short fiction, essays and articles have appeared in numerous national and literary magazines. McDonough is also the fiction editor for Lilith magazine.

She applied the Page 69 Test to her new middle-grade novel, Courageous, and reported the following:
Page 69 is the first time we meet George, Aidan’s older brother, who is a soldier in the British army during World War II. He and his mates are on their way to Dunkirk. They’ve been told that once they arrive, they will be given a hot meal and a chance to sleep. Little does George know what actually awaits him there. George is a very important character in the novel. He gives the reader an up-close and personal view of combat, and he also introduces an important theme about the horror of war for men on both sides of the conflict.
