Review by Mia Madden, aged 11.
This book is the second in the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency series. In this edition Kitty has gone to Florida before starting her epic around the world flight. From the Florida Keys to Fort Jefferson, this girl's got a huge helping of history to look forward to.
While in Key West, one of the homes of Hemingway (the famous Author), she hears something that sends her mind spinning; the bell of a typewriter coming from his writing room. This noise takes Kitty on an adventure that leads to the discovery of stories behind some ancient shipwrecks, seventeenth century treasure thieves, a lot of new friends and how great Key lime pie tastes!
But will she succeed in the hunt for Hemingway's ghost???
This book was amazing, just like the first installment The Curse of the Yukon Gold, which I reviewed last month. It is a combination of all my favourite genres: Action, adventure and mystery. I really love the character of Kitty Hawk, she is just like me, but older. She gets to travel the world and learn all about history, which is something I wouldn't mind doing when I'm older.
The author is planning to visit Ireland in the near future and I have my questions ready for our interview. He will visit my school about writing books, Kitty Hawk, Wizards, Dragons and how History can be great fun. I can't wait!
I recommend this book for aged 9+
