Remember falling in love with biographies after reading this one, my first. I think I read back in junior high but there are many updated versions as well. Inspiring!

Purchased for niece, thought I might as well read it first myself. This is a delightful and inspiring book for young readers. Not only does it describe Earhart's accomplishments, it gives details of her difficult childhood and challenges she had to overcome. throughout her life. I very much enjoyed this book.

I rated this five stars for two reasons. 1: It was a very good book, and I loved reading it, and 2:I LOVE reading about Amelia Earhart! She's SO amazing! She's SO cool! I love how she decided to break the rules woman usually followed in that time, and she became a pilot. It's a super awesome story!

I really Liked this book. It was really good but until I read this I didn't know she had so many family troubles. But it was a good book.
