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.
My Review: Kitty is another adventure and they are just getting better. Kitty is just an awesome character and you will love her right away. She seems like some cool chick you would want to hang with, even i she does have a knack for trouble....yeah Kitty is just used to that. At least she gets cool stories to share after these adventures.
So this time she decided to take a little vacation during her around the world flight. So she takes some time in Florida. Then she spots a ghost that she thinks is Ernest Hemingway and even spots his ship. So jump in the historical facts about the shipwreck, which is cool and there is also that treasure. So walking on the beach, sailing, and all fun vacation plans, is going to take a step back while she watches everything that is happening at night. Leave it to Kitty to be looking out at the night, instead of sleeping or ignoring the world.
Kitty was just awesome in this story and so like able! I can't wait for her next adventure.
