This book is an excellent compendium of stories for “rebel girls” but also for anyone interested in learning more about a variety of accomplished women immigrants. The book can be read in order or at random. For each woman her area of interest is listed. To name just some of the women included, there are Lupita Nyong’o, an actress; Madeleine Albright, politician; Frieda Belinfante, cellist and conductor;Burke Harris, pediatrician and so many more, all the way to the end of the alphabet. Each short, engaging entry includes an illustration, a quote and a short biography.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this inspiring collection that will remind girls that they can be anyone they choose. All opinions are my own.
