  • $16.95

The third and final installment in the Ginny Ross YA series, following the Red Cedar-nominated Amelia and Me and Geoffrey Bilson finalist Under Amelia's Wing.

It's 1940, war is raging in Europe, and Ginny Ross longs to join the fight against Hitler. She's a capable pilot, thanks to mentoring from Amelia Earhart and her training at Purdue University, but she's not allowed to use her skills in the US Army Air Corps, which only allows men to fly.

When a new service is created to secretly fly bombers from Newfoundland to the UK to join in the fight, Ginny realizes how she can help. She cuts her hair, changes her name, and heads to Canada as Jimmy Ross. In her disguise, Ginny takes part in the risky and vitally important mission to bring more air power to the allied forces.

Ginny is determined to do her part and ready to face down any danger, from engine failure to devastating Blitz bombing. But she never anticipated that another great danger lurks much closer…in the secret she's keeping from the men around her.

Based on the true history of the heroic Ferry Command, Beyond Amelia is an exciting, suspenseful story about the sacrifices so many young people made to turn the tide in a terrifying war.
