Reviews

"Tate's energetic illustrations harmonize well with Vernick's fresh and engaging text. History favors the individuals in the spotlight: here's an entertaining portrait of a woman who made significant strides behind the scenes."--Publishers Weekly
"Vernick employs a matter-of-fact tone and highly descriptive, accessible language that not only provides a great deal of information but also captures both the essence of the era and Manley's compassion and strength of character. ...readers will cheer."--Kirkus Reviews
"Vernick adds appeal to this straightforward biography with repetitive phrases that emphasize Manley's activist spirit, while Tate's slightly stylized acrylic paintings convey both the historical setting and the timeless excitement in the ballpark."--Booklist
