Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway's Ghost is the exciting second installment in a 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.
Once in a while a book comes along that reminds me while I developed a love for reading at a young age. Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost reminds me of the books - filled with adventure, treasure hunting, and mysteries - that kept me reading late into the night when I was younger.
However, don’t think this series is just for young readers. It is for anyone young at heart who still enjoys great adventures, who knows that somewhere out there is a treasure waiting to be found or a mystery waiting to be solved.
With fall just around the corner, why not grab a copy or two for the young readers or those young at heart in your family.
This would be a great series to develop a family book discussion to encourage and share a love for reading. Now I off to join Kitty on her third adventure - Kitty Hawk and the Icelandic Intrigue
