Description
The year is 1927, Amelia Earhart has not yet made her transatlantic flight, and a number of women wonder who will be the first to follow in Charles Lindbergh's footsteps and make her own history. Three in particular often make headlines: former actress Elsie Mackay, daughter of an earl, designer of ship interiors, and the first Englishwoman to get her pilot's license; Mabel Boll, a society darling known as the "Diamond Queen of Broadway," who would rather be known as "Queen of the Air"; and Ruth Elder, who uses her beauty pageant winnings for flying lessons to become the pre-eminent American girl of the sky. In this novel based on their true stories, the author of Spooky Little Girl and The Idiot Girls' Action Adventure Club brings these early aviatrices back to life as they chase after fame and a place in history.

"Soaring into a page-turning, stomach-churning, hilarious, and heartbreaking adventure ... Elsie, Mabel, and Ruth defied the odds stacked against them, and their indomitable spirits and vibrant, larger-than-life personalities provide much inspiration."—Publishers Weekly

"[Laurie] Notaro portrays this exciting sliver of time with historical accuracy, providing an authentic glimpse of the era (including photographs), and then adds a pump of adrenaline by including dialogue and drama of her own imagination, creating a captivating historical fiction. Be prepared to hold tight as you're boosted into the cockpit for a two-day flight across the horizon. The odds of making it are against you—but what a ride."—Kirkus Reviews
