Synopsis

You Can't Do That, Amelia! by Kimberly Wagner Klier

Young Amelia is a dreamer. She dreams of building her own roller coaster, learning to fly her own airplane, and even exploring the skies as one of the world's first female pilots. But girls in the early twentieth century do not do such things. When Amelia tells her friends and family of her adventurous plans, they only shake their heads and say, 'You can't do that, Amelia'. Amelia is not discouraged. With every dream she takes a chance and dares to see if she can build a roller coaster that will sweep her off of her feet, if she can pass the test to become a pilot, and even if she might be able to guide her airplane into the wide, blue skies.

Well researched and supplemented with biographical information, research notes, and additional sources for the curious, You Can't Do That, Amelia! will leave young readers inspired to follow their dreams and reach for the skies.
