A wonderfully written book with an exceptionally unusual subject matter, with a protagonist whose mother believes the latter is Amelia Earhart. It was an interesting read, with well-rounded characters that moved the story along. The emotions that accompanied the characters were real, and while the reader will not agree with all the choices made, they are certainly understandable.

An interesting read. The main character was sometimes hard to like, but overall, I think the author captured a difficult time and the emotions that are played out as a teenager coming of age with so many challenges in their life.
