really liked it

Grades 2-4

historical fiction

feminism; independence

Illustrations look like they were drawn with pencil.

Personal response:
The book being based off of a true event makes it so much better to me. It shows powerful females during a time in which it was probably unusual for females to exert this type of behavior. I really enjoyed how the similarities of the two women were conveyed and the inclusion of the dessert recipe at the back of the book.

Curricular or programming connections:
This book would be good for a social studies lesson on these two historical female figures and also the geography of the area described in the story.
