    Not in this book, but still one of my favorite quotes was said by Amelia’s flight instructor. He said, “Amelia isn’t famous for being a great pilot; she’s famous for being a bad pilot.” Fleming’s book doesn’t paint Amelia as a heroine either. She gives the facts but she tells them in such an enticing way you will be engrossed from the start to the finish.

    Amelia Lost: Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart is a ver

    Amelia Lost: Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart is a very good book. Its about a young woman who tries to prove to the world that women can do anything they set their mind to. She was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. She began racing planes in the U.S. and then later attempted to fly around the world. But unfortunately that's where it ends. She never made it. People think she crashed and died, but some other people think she returned to the U.S. with a different identity. It still remains a mystery.
    I think that this book has probably been one of the best Amelia's Earhart biography books I've ever read before. The author really pulls you into Amelia's life as a child struggling with her father's addiction to alcohol, to her becoming famous and being known world wide. The book really tells you a lot about her life and the struggles, the ups and downs, and how she overcame all of it. The way the book was written was good too. The headings helped organize the story, and the pictures were pretty cool, to see her family and closest friends achieve help her goals. I really recommend to this book for people to read.
