The story of Marian Anderson is amazing and intriguing to me; even the title is an attention-getter. I enjoyed every minute of this book and the story of Anderson rising to fame, developing her art, and eventually, through the beauty of music, making our nation a better place. I don't know if high school students would be quite as interested in the book as I am, unless they love opera music or the topic of equal rights. But, I think this book can present a good way that we, through our chosen professions or trades, can make the world a better place. This was a very inspiring read for high school students and adults.
