April Mae Manning from Unaccompanied Minor is back, and back in trouble, but this time, she's run out of chances...April Mae was raised on airplanes by her flight-attendant parents. But since her dad's death and her mom's remarriage to the nefarious pilot Ash Manning, April's been in nothing but danger: two airplane crashes; two car crashes; and now, as a student pilot, in an old plane crippled over the Caribbean. Can she survive, and save her friends, or is this the watery end to "Crash" Manning's story? Praise for Unaccompanied Minor: "A laugh-out-loud thriller about family court, money laundering and skyjacking" ~Kirkus Reviewsshow more

Review quote

"The sequel to Unaccompanied Minor delivers another round of in-the-air shenanigans for would-be airline heiress April Mae Manning... April's voice continues to charm...an amusing airline-industry thriller that informs as it entertains." --Kirkus Reviews "April Mae Manning...once again finds herself in the middle of a series of crazy events... Pure entertainment value, this series entry is action-packed and fast paced. Gillespie...writes funny dialogue...[and] this work has a ton of aviation-related trivia and facts along with all kinds of survival tips." --School Library Journal "[Readers will] love buckling up for a rollicking ride with snack packs of aviation science and history that invite further tasting." --VOYA Magazine "A great action-packed blockbuster read. Gillespie maintains the suspense, keeping the reader completely wrapped up in the story. This is perfect for middle school and high school readers. Adults will find this a fun light read and a great escape book." --YA Books Centralshow more
