The Amelia Six by Kristin L. Gray

Description: Eleven-year-old Amelia Ashford (Millie) is given the opportunity to spend the night in Amelia Earhart’s childhood home with five other girls. Once at Amelia’s house in Atchison, Kansas, Millie stumbles upon a display of Amelia’s famous flight goggles. They’re about to be relocated to a fancy museum in Washington, DC. But the goggles disappear, and Millie was the last to see them. Soon, fingers are pointing in all directions, and someone falls strangely ill. Suddenly, a fun night of scavenger hunts and sweets takes a nosedive and the girls aren’t sure who to trust. With a blizzard raging outside and a house full of suspects, the girls have no choice but to band together. It’s up to the Amelia Six to find the culprit and return the goggles to their rightful place. Or the next body to collapse could be one of theirs. 

Review: I may be a little biased because I’m from Kansas, but I absolutely adored this book. Kristin L. Gray did a fantastic job making each of the suspects seem capable of the theft, and though I correctly guessed the thief early on, she made me doubt my decision many times. I also loved how much girl power radiated from this story. The main characters are six diverse, brainy, and ambitious girls who have been excelling in various branches of science. Then you have the inclusion of all-women pilot organizations, and of course, the main woman herself, Amelia Earhart. Overall, this story is a hit and I highly recommend it for everyone to read, especially young girls.
