Book Description
The year is 1932. The place is Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, where most of the early transatlantic flights take off. Unfortunately, more of them end in tragedy than in success. Some crash on takeoff, some crash into the Atlantic Ocean, and some are simply never heard of again. In spite of the danger, twelve-year-old Ginny Ross longs to be one of these pioneers of flight.

But the obstacles to her success are enormous. Who will take a twelve-year-old seriously? Where will she find money for flying lessons at the height of the Depression? Who will try to stop her and who will support her when most pilots at this time are men?

Ginny will need courage, determination, and stubbornness if she wants to make her dream come true. This leads to one more question. Does she have what it takes?

About the Author
Heather Stemp was born Heather Ross in 1945. Her father was Billy Ross, from Heatherís book Amelia and Me, and her mother was Peggy Waddell, a war bride from Greenock, Scotland. Peggy and Billy met in Scotland during the Second World War.

Heather currently lives in North Bay, Ontario, with her husband, Don. She has two sons, four grandchildren, and one grand-dog. After thirty years of teaching, Heather retired and wrote Amelia and Me so her grandchildren would know their roots. She also wanted to share the rich history of Harbour Grace, Newfoundland. She is currently working on a second book about Ginny Rossís life and adventures.
