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.

My Point of View (POV):

** I received an eBook copy from the publisher for an honest review**

This is the 2nd installment of Kitty’s adventure around the world and this time, she’s going underwater.

Since I already read the first book, I expected more for the second book. As I started to read the story, I also keep on googling all the places she had been. The consistency of real trivia and places are still there and a question appeared in my mind which I want to ask personally to the author: “Did you really visited or just researched all the said places?” Because he describes the places as if he was there before.

Back to the story, frankly speaking, I do not know who Mr. Hemingway is but I’ am thankful about this story for it introduced me who Hemingway is. There is too much detail stored which sometimes makes the story boring but I love the story of Dry Tortugas and I feel like I need to list it on my bucket list.

Less conversation is boring that is why I just skim some parts of the story. I’m sad to say that book 1 is much much better from book 2. Disappointment slowly appeared when I realize that the story doesn’t focus on the ghost of Hemingway. I love thrill and mystery but not this one.

All in all, I feel disappointed in the ending. But I still have the urge to read the last book of Kitty’s adventure.
