From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-9 This book doesn't present any new material about the disappearance of Amelia Earhart, but it does provide an interesting and well written overview of her life and the various theories explaining her disappearance. Black-and-white photos are included. This book is much more open than Davis' sanitized Amelia Earhart (Putnam, 1972; o.p.), with discussions of Earhart's father's alcoholism and the strain that it put on the family. Randolph also speaks freely of Earhart's desire to maintain her freedom within her marriage. Her achievements are given solid recognition, and she is presented as a positive role model. The last chapter deals with theories explaining what happened to Earhart, involving readers in the mysterious excitement surrounding her disappearance. Randolph presents Earhart as a real person, not as a cardboard heroine, which is a welcome change from many biographies for young people. Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, Mo.
