Amelia Lost: The Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart
by Candace Fleming

Summary: Biography of the famous female aviator Amelia Earhart including information about her mysterious disappearance.      

ThoughtsAmelia 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.
