I urge you to read The Glamour Years of Flying as a Stewardess by Heddy Frosell DaPonte. This first person account of a young woman who became a PanAm stewardess is mesmerizing. I happily give it full stars!
This book brings humor to the pharmacy! I unequivocally rate Let Sleeping Pharmacists Lie: tales from pharmacy school and the patients you just don’t forget by Janelle Soong as 5 out of 5 stars. I find this book to be appropriate for all adults and interested young adults.
Bernice Takes A Plunge by Ann Hath is a 5 out of 5 stars, fun, YA detective novel. At least, the main character is a detective-in-training. I can imagine many late elementary and early middle schoolers empathizing with Bernice, and maybe even mimicking her with her notebook on the playground.

This character is a little ahead of her time, but she surely comes into herself.
