What it’s about: A collected biography of some great female icons throughout history.
What made me pick it up: It seemed like a fitting book to kick off my 2018 reading with.
My favorite things: I liked that this profiled Claudette Colvin, who predated and inspired Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat. It’s always great to see women who are not the usual reference points for a specific time in history also get their stories told.
Who it’s great for: Everyone. Especially little girls who need role models from all walks of life.
