This was an interesting survival story written for younger readers, but somehow it was just not as compelling to me as some others that I‘ve read. It has seemed to be a bit easier of a sell to some middle school students, so I‘m hoping I can use it to introduce them to other similar stories as well.

This book was published in 2011, it is also a biography. This book shows the amazing life of Amelia Earhart, but also struggles that she had to face through her life as well. The story tells why she cut her hair, and explains some of the records she broke.
I enjoyed this book, and the ways the book was written and explained. The different types of terminology throughout the book are great ways for readers to learn more about flying.

em_lemo My favorite line throughout the book is,
“He wanted the flyer to inspire the female student to take up careers in such a male dominated field as agriculture and engineering.“
I liked this because it showed that people, men, were ready for some change within the world when it came to the jobs that females could take part in. It is amazing to think about how these people trusted her and wanted her although she did not have teaching experience.

Using a portion of her mother's inheritance, 19 year old Amelia headed off to Rydal, Pennsylvania, where she attended the Ogontz school.

This book is quite long, but I believe it would be good for a middle school classroom. The pictures and items in the book are very fascinating.

With stunning photographs and primary sources, this book makes the disappearance of Amelia Earhart feel as real as it did back in 1937. I found it very interesting that Amelia's radio waves were heard way in Florida when she crashed in the Pacific Ocean. This book is very driven and tells an amazing story.

Another great read out loud. I think some more of this series will be under our Christmas tree! #NFNov
