Christina was like a junior Wonder Woman - she skydived, scuba dived, and flew airplanes like an experienced pilot after only a few hours of instruction. If the girls were a little younger, and if the more violent scenes were rewritten or deleted, the story would be appropriate - perhaps even inspirational - for younger teenagers, but the story just wasn't believable enough for me.
The first third of the book, which followed the three girls from age eleven through high school, wasn't that interesting and served little purpose. There were dead ends such as the chapter where Jessica's abusive stepfather Roy beat her mom senseless, broke down Jessica's bedroom door, and tried to rape her. Jessica had telephoned Christina to help her, so Christina rushed over and stopped Roy by threatening him with her shotgun. But there was no follow-up, no calling the police, no mention of the stepfather after that. And there was very little mention of any of the girls' parents, it's almost as if they raised themselves.
About halfway through the story, the action picked up and the story got more interesting when the three girls entered college. Christina started flying lessons, Heather became romantically involved with an older man, and Jessica studied old Spanish archives to locate sunken treasure. The three girls were now living their dreams. During a summer break, they embarked on a trip to the Bahamas on a treasure-hunting expedition that ended in tragedy. And this is where it really got too unbelievable for me. Christina showed flying skills that only a veteran pilot would have, even though she had not even earned her pilot's license.Read more ›
Most of the story was also unbelievable. To think that an overweight plane could gain enough speed on a sandy beach is just too far fetched.
Perhaps the author should go back and rewrite some of the story.
I won't quote examples from the book - download the sample, read the first five or six paragraphs, and see for yourself. Perhaps I got up on the wrong side of bed this morning, or maybe you don't mind infantile style as much as I do. So, if aviation themed thrillers are you cup of tea, by all means buy this book (after all, it is just $0.99 for American Kindlers), but don't expect polished, fluid prose.

|Why not more action FEMALE lead characters?||
Why not? Because inherently, most men assume women are stupid and ineffective in matters that are traditionally male. It's an age old assumption, I would guess this makes themselves feel better. Keep writing strong female characters, maybe it will slowly chip away at that tough facade that... Read More
