   Amelia Lost
Earhart does a fantastic job of luring the reader into Fleming's story. The author begins with Earhart's idyllic childhood and moves through the difficult years of Amelia's father's alcoholism to let the reader see the forces that have shaped the woman that Earhart became. Showing no judgments of Fleming, Earhart tells the facts as they are known and leaves the reader to make up his own mind about Amelia. Fleming does the seeming impossible by involving the reader so involved in the story that heshe hopes that the end of the story will be different than he knows it to be. The design of the book is sharp and easy to follow with photographs placed appropriately.

   I really like this book
I really like this book, it is very easy to read and understand and the variety of the pictures is very informative. I am in the 8th grade and we had to choose a biography book about a person and this is definitely one that I can truly say is easy to read. Definitely the best book on Amelia that I have seen!

   Phenomenal Bio! One of the best I’ve read for 4th-7th!
For my granddaughter, I bought this and started to skim it, but couldn t put it down. The author explores some of the myths surrounding Amelia. She has done her research, that is for sure. There is also much info given through inserts about the tech of the times, which adds much depth to understanding. I also appreciate the way she did not paint her as this perfect person, but a real person with flaws and quirks! Can you tell me which is a winner? PS, I am a former librarian! )

   Good balance of words and images
Looks like a great book for a middle school kid. Mine arrived with a sticky cover and a torn finger print. The book itself was fine and was clearly new, so I'm going to try and clean that sticky smudge before giving it to my kid, who is a big Amelia fan.

   Good book for a book report!
My daughter is in the 5th grade and used this for a book report. It was a bit emotional for her to read about the disappearance, but I think the book was well written.

   Fascinating and engaging read!
I read this book for my 11 year old voracious-reader son after he and I received “The Family Romanov ”. Both books are so incredibly interesting and bring history to life. Storyteller, writer and historian.
