**This is the sequel to Unaccompanied Minor, so there may be some spoilers.**
This book is even crazier than the first. It picks up shortly after April Mae Manning, the almost-sixteen-year-old, who is now the owner of WorldAir, suddenly doesn’t for a while. There’s a dispute about whether April’s grandfather is really her grandfather after all. And then there’s a few dead bodies; her friend, the Waffle House waitress, is hanging on by a thread in the hospital; her best friend, Malcolm just pretended that he didn’t know who she was; she has still not passed her driving test; and there’s something shady going on involving caskets, a flight to the Cayman Islands, and a fluffy dog named Fifi Trixibelle II.
Unaccompanied Minor was a very pleasant surprise, and so I had great expectations for the sequel. This is your pilot speaking: I was not one bit disappointed. The action is super fast, sometimes told in flashback, with many of the original characters returning. There are surprises, twists and turns, but after a bumpy takeoff and some issues in the air, the landing is as smooth as butter. It’s quite a thrilling ride whenever you are around April Mae Manning and her crew. And bring some airsickness bags, just in case.
So stow away all of your electronics, get your beverage of choice and settle in. You’re going to want to finish this before deplaning.
