Book Summary

Amelia Earhart: This Broad Ocean, a graphic novel written by Sarah Stewart Taylor and illustrated by Ben Towle, tells the story of Amelia Earharts historic crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in 1928.

Earhart developed a love of flying at a very young age...and she wasnt about to let any man get in the way of her dreams. What began as a simple joy became something much deeper — a commitment to open doors for all women. As Earhart built a name for herself in the field of aviation — breaking numerous records along the way — she paved the road for future trailblazers, women like Danica Patrick, the first woman to win an Indy car race, and Eileen Collins, the first female space shuttle pilot.

Taylor and Towles book offers a glimpse at her relentless ambition and her tireless will to promote womens rights. But above all, author and illustrator leave us with a sense of her deep-rooted desire to touch the sky.

    Very engrossing and a very quick read. Details Earhart's historic flight across the Atlantic. Told from the perspective of a girl named Grace, who is very interested in Earhart's endeavors. Interestingly, since the story is told from Grace's perspective, we only get to experience what happens before the flight, and then we see Grace's jubilation when she learns that Earheart has landed safely on the other side of the Atlantic. There is nothing about the actual flight. I wonder why that is, because Earhart wrote a whole book about that flight, so there's no shortage of factual information to draw from. The story ends by fast-forwarding to several years later, with a grown-up Grace discovering that Earhart has disappeared during her attempt to circumnavigate the Earth by plane. I felt like this totally opens up an avenue for Taylor and Towle to continue - and complete - Earhart's story. As for the art, I thought it was interesting how the only color used is this light blue color. It represents the sky, obviously, but I also felt like it was referencing the ocean; the ocean was important to Earhart because her crossing of the Atlantic was what made her famous, and because she ultimately disappeared over the ocean. I like when artists use the medium to convey some kind of message. Overall, I really liked it and would definitely recommend it.

    I agree with another reviewer who wrote that this book has too long of a set-up to be so short. I loved the three color art (the bright blue was so striking!), but was missing something when I turned the last page.

    I liked the addition of Grace, the young girl reporter who gets to meet Amelia through her persistence & moxie (great word, right?), but would have loved to learn more about Amelia/see more of Amelia, and learn about her path to flying.
