    I am a high school student that needed to read this book for a research project.. I enjoyed most of the chapters in this book.
     I liked how this autobiography tells the reader about her childhood and how she had fallen in love with aviation.
    I enjoyed reading about her flights and what she was accomplishing as a beginner in aviation.This book covers almost everything you would like to know about Amelia except for some of her feminist groups and ideas. Although, this book does go into depth about her aviation career and many trips she took around the world and awards she received.. The book does go on about her trips and aviation career which gets a little boring in a couple of chapters but overall it is a great book. The author briefly explains some of her beliefs she had in feminism and not to be what society depicts a woman to be which is inspiring. This is a great and easy book to read. For anyone wanting to know about her i would most likely recommend anyone to read this book!

I thought it was great how she didn't let other people who were against women doing things men usually did stop her from becoming a pilot and doing what she loved. The author also talks about family, friends, marriage and the many different intellectuals in her life. This books covers almost everything about her and was very useful for my project.  This is a great and easy book to read. For anyone wanting to know about her this is the book for you!

    I am a sophomore high school student that had to read this book

    I am a sophomore high school student that had to read this book for a research project. I found this book to be
    interesting and I very much enjoyed reading it. It talks about how Amelia came to love aviation, even though
    she never expected it to become so significant in her life. It demonstrated how Amelia was a strong symbol for
     women, as many women at the time did not even own a plane. Reading how kind Amelia was in giving back to
     her family, by giving her mother money, and her fellow aviators by donating items whoever won a race. It talks
    about her rise to fame even though some of her flying attempts had failed. This book does not give excess
    information on things that aren't important. It discusses you of people and events throughout Amelia's life that 
    were influential in her personal as well as in her career as an aviator. This book gives brief information on how a
    certain person, event, or plane is connected to Amelia and her life. It talks about Amelia's various friends, both
    aviators and non aviators and their opinions about Amelia and her flying career. What I really enjoyed most
    about this book was seeing how once Amelia became interested in aviation, she never wanted to stop flying
    and didn't care that it was dangerous .
