Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost is the exciting second installment in a new 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.
Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost is a perfect book to fire the imaginations of readers of all ages. Filled with fascinating and highly Google-able locations and history this book will inspire anyone to learn about and experience as much of our amazing world as they can – just like Kitty Hawk herself.
Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost is the second book in Kitty’s adventure series. The first book, Kitty Hawk and The Curse of the Yukon Gold, introduces us to Kitty Hawk. She is an older teen who is setting out on an adventure to Alaska in her plane to research whales.
In this book, Kitty is setting off on a trip around the world! She stops in Key West and her next adventure begins! While in Key West, she explores the town and meets some interesting characters. Her trip in the Keys takes her to the Dry Tortugas where the mystery begins. Kitty isn’t sure who she can trust through this mystery involving ship wrecks and lost treasures…not to mention Ernest Hemingway! But as she moves through this exciting trip, she makes some interesting discoveries. She also makes some great friends who will hopefully make an appearance in the following stories.
As in the first book, this book is filled with a lot of history which you may or may not find interesting. I like history, so the facts added to the story. If you’ve got a younger reader, they might get bogged down by it. I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading the rest of Kitty’s stories and about her trip around the world!
