Review: Amelia Six

The Amelia Six
Millie's about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. She's won a coveted spot to spend the night at Amelia Earhart's childhood home with five other girls. Millie doesn't have any friends and since her mom left, it's just been her and her dad.

Mille's excited to explore the house. When looking for a place to sleep, she accidentally stumbles into the wrong room where she sees Amelia Earhart's famous goggles. Unlucky for her, the housekeeper spots her and yells at her.

Later in the night, during the scavenger hunt, someone notices the goggles are missing. Fingers point towards Millie as she was one of the last people to see them. The girls scramble to find the goggles. The snow outside becomes a blizzard, leaving everyone cut off from the rest of the world. There's something strange happening in the house and the girls come together to solve the mystery.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book - for the history of Amelia Earhart, for the friendships formed, for the nerdy smart girls, for the scavenger hunt, and for all the action and the danger. I love reading about smart, nerdy girls. Especially when they all become friends. I loved how the girls came together to solve the mystery. I really want to visit Amelia Earhart's family home now. I loved hearing about all the nooks and crannies. Lots of twists and turns in the plot - which kept me turning those pages to find out what happened.

Cover Thoughts: Cute
