Amelia Lost by Candace Fleming

“All I wished to do in the world was to be a vagabond in the air.” Amelia Earhart’s quote frames the back cover of Candace Fleming’s extraordinary biography. Reading as much as a thriller as a history book, Fleming oscillates between Earhart’s life as a girl, a woman, and a flier, with the search for her plane when it went missing in July 1937. Garnering starred reviews from Horn Magazine, Kirkus Review and School Library Journal, Amelia Lost employs riveting text, archival documents, enlightening sidebars, and wonderful maps to provide a complete portrait of Earhart. Ages 8+

The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis

The Mighty Miss Malone is a smart, amusing novel about a loving, bookish family’s struggle to live together when job possibilities are forcing them apart—a struggle as relevant today as it was in the 1930’s setting of Curtis’s story. Warmly memorable and completely buzz-worthy. Ostensibly for grades 5–8. And the rest of us.

The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen

With a murdered royal family and a country on the brink of civil war, Connor, regent of the crown, has a treasonous plot to train one of four orphans in order to pass him off as the long-lost prince. From the start, it’s impossible not to become attached to the orphan, Sage. He is the narrator of this tale, and you never know if he is lying to us, to himself, or to everyone else in the book, but you need to find out. This book was so hard to put down that I had to keep it in my backseat so I wasn’t tempted to read it at stoplights. It will appeal to fans of Megan Whelan Turner, Suzanne Collins, and Mark Twain. Grades 5–9.
