Overview

In the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, Charlotte Henson fell in love with flying on her twelfth birthday, when her uncle took her and her twin sister, Anastasia, up in his single-engine biplane. Now that she's sixteen, Charlotte is old enough to take flying lessons, despite the fact that her father forbids it. Behind his back, she conspires with Anastasia and recruits her mother to aid in her efforts to earn a pilot's license. She enrolls in her high school's aviation class and gets a job at the local municipal airport, where she charms the staff with her work ethic and positive spunk. There, she befriends McQueen, a hot-looking pilot and aviation mechanic who's also a star athlete at Charlotte's school.

Flight training is exhilarating but intense, challenging Charlotte's steely determination and making her doubt she has what it takes to become a Navy pilot. When Charlotte takes her friends flying and calamity occurs, she must use all she has learned to save their lives and prove to everyone, even herself, that her dream to fly is worth fighting for.

Hardly Easy is a story about inspiring and empowering teenagers to follow their dreams, especially when stepping outside their comfort zone might feel like stepping off a cliff.

About the Author

Kimberley Jochl was born and raised among the rolling hills in Lee, Massachusetts. She has a twin sister who literally looks just like her. They fool people all the time and during their teens and early twenties competed together on the United States Alpine Ski Team. Eventually, Kimberley graduated from college, then got married and now has a college-age daughter. They have a family dog named Snoopy who has an adorable, yet sometimes self-serving personality and was rescued from a shelter. Kimberley's adventures of earning a pilot's license led to the writing of Hardly Easy. She is the vice president at Sugar Mountain Ski Resort and lives with her husband in the Village of Sugar Mountain, North Carolina.
