Amelia and MeBook - 2013
The year is 1932. The place is Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, where most of the early transatlantic flights take off. Unfortunately, more of them end in tragedy than in success. In spite of the danger, twelve-year-old Ginny Ross longs to be one of these pioneers of flight, but who will take a twelve-year-old seriously? Where will she find money for flying lessons at the height of the Depression? Who will try to stop her and who will support her when most pilots at this time are men? Ginny will need courage, determination, and stubbornness if she wants to make her dream come true.
