Synopsis

Flying Lessons by Kezi Matthews

In 1937 -- the summer that Amelia Earhart disappears -- 13-year-old LaMarr's flamboyant mother, Charmaine, flies off with a stunt pilot and doesn't return. Sent to live with an aunt and uncle, LaMarr awaits her mother's return while attempting to track down her long-lost father. A crusty old man, a former Teddy Roosevelt Rough Rider, befriends her. The old man's friendship and wisdom help LaMarr finally accept the probability that her mother is gone forever.With characteristic wry humor and southern honesty, Kezi Matthews mixes the glamour of wide-screen dreams with the sad lessons of life and death.
