Summary: Biography of the famous female aviator Amelia Earhart including information about her mysterious disappearance.
Thoughts: Amelia Lost is told through alternating chapters focusing on Amelia Earhart's life and her disappearance. Earhart led a fascinating life and there was a lot more to her story than I knew. In many ways, she creatively worked to build her own celebrity. The author effectively tells the myths as well as the accurate, well-researched details. This is an engrossing biography that I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish.
