Product Details


Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, January 1, 2011:
“Handwritten notes, photos, maps and inquisitive sidebars (What did Earhart eat during flight? Tomato juice and chocolate) complete this impeccably researched, appealing package. A stunning look at an equally stunning lady.”

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, March/April 2011:
“The book’s structure and scope, along with the story’s inherent drama, provide a taut, cinematic backdrop for the history of Earhart’s doomed flight.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, March 2011:
“Ho-hum history? Not in Fleming’s apt hands. What could be a dry recitation of facts and dates is instead a gripping and suspenseful thriller…This book is splendid. Hand it to everyone.

Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, March 2011:
“Fleming cleverly structures this biography to give the tale of tragedy a fresh and dreadful impact…As a result, this offers not only a provocative introduction to Earhart but also compelling glimpse of what it was like to watch her disappear from the world.”
