I am a high school sophomore student who had to do a research project on Amelia Earhart. I have always been interested in learning new facts about Amelia Earhart, and this book was filled with lots of information about her. One of my favorite things that I have learned about her was that she was a feminist and that she cared for women’s rights.She inspired me more than before when I read this book because she didn’t care about what anyone else thought of her and she took chances to achieve her goals in aviation. It was fascinating to read about her childhood and learning that she stood out as a young girl. Although I am very interested in learning about Amelia, the book was very dry to me and I had trouble staying focused. I felt that Butler put a lot more detail than needed. When I planned to read for an hour, after only reading thirty minutes into the book, I feel as if I’ve been reading for a long time. I do believe that this book is tiresome due to the fact that I’ve dozed off a couple times while reading. The author puts unnecessary information on Amelia’s ancestry, when the person I’m focused on learning about is Amelia.This book was a good resource to learn more information on Amelia Earhart, but I wish that Butler didn’t include too much unnecessary details on non-important subjects which unfortunately made the book to lengthy and boring to read.
