Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 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.".
