11-year-old Millie and five other science-minded girls from around the country, win an overnight stay at Amelia Earhart’s childhood home, now a museum dedicated to the famous pilot. The girls and the staff of the museum provide the kind of variety and quirkiness you’d expect in a cozy little mystery.
The mystery? Amelia Earhart’s actual goggles, which were to be sent to the Smithsonian in a few days have gone missing. With a nasty Midwest snowstorm outside, it’s clear the thief is still in the house. How’s that for an overnighter? After the host of the museum is drugged and asleep—it’s up to the girls to figure out whodunit, before something happens to one of them. A typical sleep over, in that no one is going to sleep!
Fast paced and full of historical facts about the beloved aviatrix.
