Title: Unaccompanied Minor - April Mae Manning Book 1 Author: Hollis Gillespie Published: 1-18-2014 Publisher: F&W/Adams Media Pages: 256 Genre: Teen & Young Adult Sub Genre: Fiction; Suspense ISBN: 9781440567735 ASIN: B00GVHS6AM Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley Rating: 4.5 Stars . I received a copy of Unaccompanied Minor - April Mae Manning from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. From the Publishers Fourteen-year-old April May Manning spent her life on airplanes with her flight attendant parents. When her father dies in a crash, April's mom marries a pilot who turns out to be an abusive jerk, and gets Mom confined to a psychiatric hospital. So April takes off, literally, living on airplanes, using her mother's flight benefits, relying on the flight crews who know she's been shuttling between divorcing parents for a year. Then, there's a hijacking, but why is April's "dad" on board? April flees to the cargo hold with another unaccompanied minor she's met before, and they fight to thwart the hijackers, faking a fire, making weapons from things they find in luggage. At last, locked in the cockpit with a wounded police officer, the boy, and his service dog, April tries to remember everything her parents said to do in a crisis above the clouds. But she knows it won't be enough. April Mae Manning is a character teenagers can relate to in many ways. She is a bit snippy, self contained and completely loyal to those she trust. The characters in this book do not stand back in the shadows, but rather stand up announce themselves boldly. At first the novel a bit confusing to the reader, but it is important to understanding April and even Malcolm to some extent. As you continue the ramblings of April leave you wondering why the investigator allows it, but you soon realize April is leading the interrogation she wants. Once you get into the story, you will not want to put it down. Although written for junior and senior high grades, I must admit I found the story compelling. I especially liked the little tidbit of aviation facts thrown in interesting and looked for them through out the novel. I found the publishers description of the book's premises better than what I could come up without revealing to much of the plot. A definite book for young readers and even adults who enjoy lighter thrillers. My rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Hilarious, very well-crafted, action-packed. I couldn't put it down.

In the beginning of the story, it's a little confussing as to what is going on. Once I figured it out it was a little far fetched. 14/15 year old kid doing all this Macgyver stuff, making flashlights, blowing holes in planes, etc. Kind of crazy.
