S&S/Paula Wiseman Books has acquired The Amelia Six, a middle grade mystery by Kristin L. Gray. When an 11-year-old girl who loves airplanes and Rubik's speed-cubing, and five other aviation and science-minded girls, are chosen to spend the night at the Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum, a valuable and historic object goes missing and mayhem ensues.

Here is what I thought

The Amelia Six was a fun middle grade mystery and I am glad to have read it.

Six girls from all different backgrounds, who all have different reasons as to why they were chosen, get to spend the night in Amelia Earhart’s childhood home for the night.

Birdie one of the ninety-nine, lady pilots, is the person in charge of the childhood home and she also lives  there. There are a goggles that Amelia wore and it’s the pride and joy of the site. During a scavenger hunt full of fun Earhart facts the girls find that the goggles are missing!

So who could have taken the goggles? Besides the six girls there is only three adults in the house. The girls decide that they must try and figure things out before their parents come and get them the next day.

I thought this was a cute mystery story fill with fun facts about Amelia Earhart. The girls were all pretty cool in their own ways and even though they all didn’t get off to a good start with each other at first they quickly became friends and worked together to figure things out.

I think it’s a great little mystery for young readers and would highly recommend it!
