Marjorie Smith has written a real page-turner here, with multiple layers of mystery spread over fifty-plus years of history. What happened to Amelia Earhart? Well, Smith lays out a plausible (albeit fictional) account, and then weaves it into a story of intrigue that takes the reader on a dizzying ride back and forward through time and across oceans and continents.

Most of the action takes place on Guam and Saipan in the '60s, '70s, and '80s, and Smith evokes the times and places accurately, lovingly, with grace and humor. Anyone who was there in those years -- or who's there now -- will be captivated. And she makes the reader -- this reader, anyway -- really relate to her major characters. I didn't want the book to end, except that without an ending I'd never have figured out the mystery.

A great read!

This was a delight to read. First, it evokes the eternal mystery of what happened to Amelia Earhart. Then the author expertly weaves three different plot lines together to make a fine modern mystery. The characters were interesting and believable, and the Pacific locales are so evocative. I really enjoyed this!

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed "Making Up Amelia". I don't usually read mysteries, but this one interested me. What DID happen to Amelia Earhart? Was there more to the story than a simple plane crash? I wanted to know what might have occurred.
Even though "Making Up Amelia" is fiction, it's easy to believe something like the plot that unfolds could have happened: murder, intrigue, possible U.S. government involvement, are all plausible. Marjorie Smith weaves times and places together beautifully. The characters are well drawn and quite believable. The dialogue is lively and realistic. The ending is surprising, and yet pulls many threads together and seems right. Who knows? Reality could have unfolded in this way.
I recommend this book to anyone enjoys a page-turning mystery and anyone who is curious about the unsolved mystery of Amelia Earhart's last flight. A well-written, fascinating story.

This was a very enjoyable book to read. Gave me some insight on the location and times. Written from experience as Majorie has lived there. A real page turner - I read it in 4 days! Loved it.
