Publisher Description

From the acclaimed author of The Great and Only Barnum—as well as The Lincolns, Our Eleanor, and Ben Franklin's Almanac—comes the thrilling story of America's most celebrated flyer, Amelia Earhart.

In alternating chapters, Fleming deftly moves readers back and forth between Amelia's life (from childhood up until her last flight) and the exhaustive search for her and her missing plane. With incredible photos, maps, and handwritten notes from Amelia herself—plus informative sidebars tackling everything from the history of flight to what Amelia liked to eat while flying (tomato soup)—this unique nonfiction title is tailor-made for middle graders.

Amelia Lost received four starred reviews and Best Book of the Year accolades from School Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, Horn Book Magazine, the Washington Post, and the New York Times.

Great!

This is a very informative and high quality book. It shows readers how Amelia Earhart lives l, her past, and how she even started to enjoy flying. His book is like none other. It helped me learn more about not only Amelia, not her husband, George Putnam, and her around the world navigator, Fred Noonan. The story also let me see how exactly Amelia influenced other women and how we can make a difference in life. Thank you Amelia Earhart, and thank you Candace Fleming, this book is a one of a kind.
