Wow! A stunning book.

I want to shout about this book from the rooftops! It's the best introduction to women’s history in America I’ve ever seen!

Written in the form of an alphabet book, the 25 women in this book (X is for the women we don’t yet know) are an impressive group. Clear thought has been given to diversity of accomplishments, race, time period, and more. My favorite thing about this book is that the women represented in the pages are ones that children may not have heard of- Dolores Huerta, Kate Bornstein, Temple Grandin, Hazel Scott, Wilma Mankiller, and Yuri Kochiyama, just to name a few! Although this book is written for children, the gorgeous art and smart summaries makes this a winner for all ages.
Fantastic

I was lucky enough to see the Congressman and the other authors speak live, and this book is just as fantastic as I hoped for.
Ending was too neat

This book wrapped up a little too neatly, but I did enjoy the characters and the way that the story developed throughout the book, with multiple voices.
Great potrait of first love

I thought this book fell apart a little at the end- there were certain parts that I just didn't find believable. However, overall, it's a tender and moving portrait of two teenagers in love. And the narration on this audio book is great.
Didn't get the appeal

I honestly didn't think this one was as good as the hype. The characters were fine, and well balanced, but I found a lot of the scenarios they were in unrealistic and the ending boring.
