The Chance You Won't Return

author: Annie Cardi

Driverís ed and a first crush should be what Alex Winchester is stressed out about in high school -- and she is. But whatís really on her mind is her mother. Why is she dressing in Dadís baggy khaki pants with a silk scarf around her neck? What is she planning when she pores over maps in the middle of the night? When did she stop being Mom and start being Amelia Earhart? Alex tries to keep her budding love life apart from the growing disaster at home as her mother sinks further into her delusions. But there are those nights, when everyone else is asleep, when itís easier to confide in Amelia than it ever was to Mom. Now, as Ameliaís flight plans become more intense, Alex is increasingly worried that Amelia is planning her final flight -- the flight from which she never returns. What could possibly be driving Momís delusions, and how far will they take her?

When your mom thinks sheís Amelia Earhart, navigating high school, first
love, and family secrets is like flying solo without a map.
