From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up–This clearly written title highlights the groundbreaking accomplishments of the woman who served under Franklin D. Roosevelt as the U.S. Secretary of Labor. A tour de force politically, Perkins made a name for herself as a social reformer. Keller not only covers her education and career, but also her personal life, especially her relationship with her husband, who suffered from mental illness, and her daughter. The narrative is well researched and includes numerous quotes that are cited in a source notes section. Good-quality photographs depict many of the individuals mentioned in the text and illustrate the historical period. An appended time line gives readers a full perspective of Perkins's endeavors. The book makes clear that her appointment paved the way for women politically. A strong choice for women's history and political-science collections.–Delia Carruthers, Sunset Ridge Middle School, West Jordan, UT
