Informative and enjoyable read. The cover art is clever too. An interesting story based on real-life events that sends an fundamental message to younger readers about the importance of voting and standing up for your rights.

I want to read more Suffragette books this year to mark the 100 years since women got the vote. This was a good starter.

Set in the times of the suffragette movement we meet Lizzy whom works hard at her job, likes cycling and becomes a Votes For Women campaigner as she meets Julia and Elsie as well as encountering a few famous names too!

I'm always a big fan of Barrington Stoke collaborations. I think it's brilliant that they make the effort to target teenagers who struggle to read or might be less inclined to pick up more difficult books.
This story is a great way for young people to learn about the suffragette movement. It explains the Cat and Mouse Act and features some cameos from high-profile suffragettes, even going so far as to show our protagonist, Lizzy, in jail for campaigning!
However, it ends on a heavy-handed note wh
