From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-6-Thirteen-year-old Francesca realizes that her wealthy, comfortable Victorian lifestyle is not what she wants for her future. Secretly she yearns to go to college and become a reporter in her hometown of Washington, DC. Of course her patrician father will not hear of it and her mother, although sympathetic to such movements as getting the vote for women and women working out of the home, is stuck in her life of luxury and male dominance. A parade scene down Pennsylvania Avenue on the day of President Woodrow Wilson's inauguration ceremonies is a particularly well-written excerpt that illustrates the various facets and points of view toward the suffragist movement. Combine this story with Shana Corey's You Forgot Your Skirt, Amelia Bloomer (Scholastic, 2000) to illustrate the role of women in the early 20th century.-Betsy Barnett, Eads School District, CO
