Summary from Goodreads: Kitty Hawk and the Hunt
for Hemingway's Ghost is the exciting second installment in a new series
of adventure mystery stories that are one part travel, one part history
and five parts adventure. This second book in the series continues the
adventures of Kitty Hawk, an intrepid teenage pilot who has decided to
follow in the footsteps of her hero Amelia Earhart and make an epic
flight around the entire world. After flying across North America
Kitty's journey takes her down south to Florida where she plans to get a
bit of rest and relaxation before continuing on with the rest of her
long and grueling flight. As Kitty explores the strange and magical
water world of the Florida Keys her knack for getting herself into
precarious situations sweeps her headlong into the adventure of a
lifetime involving mysterious lights, ancient shipwrecks, razor-toothed
barracudas and even a sighting of the great Ernest Hemingway himself.
This exhilarating story will have armchair explorers and amateur
detectives alike anxiously following every twist and turn as they are
swept across the landscape and history of the Florida Keys all the way
from Key West to the strange and remarkable world of Fort Jefferson and
the Dry Tortugas.
Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost
is a perfect book to fire the imaginations of readers of all ages.
Filled with fascinating and highly Google-able locations and history
this book will inspire anyone to learn about and experience as much of
our amazing world as they can - just like Kitty Hawk herself.
I rarely say this, but I have to say that I liked the second book more than the first. That is not saying anything about the first, because I really enjoyed it, but this was fun. I liked being reunited with Kitty Hawk and the adventures she gets herself into-even when trying to relax and have down time.
The book is imaginative and it certainly brings out the adventurer in me. I appreciate that she is able to solve what is presented to her, even if it is not in the way that I would have thought. These books are a lot of fun.
