Reviews

"This appealing page-turner helps fill the void of biographies on Latina women. Girls, boys, scouts, non- scouts--all will be inspired by Acevedo's story." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Those seeking stories of female STEM trailblazers will find much to love here. Encouraging and uplifting." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A gem of an autobiography...The text is accessible, and the story of Acevedo's life touches upon a number of salient points for readers including racism, gender roles, and educational inequality." -- School Library Journal

School Library Journal "Acevedo's moving autobiographical account shines in its honesty, personal details, and inspirational message." -- Horn Book Magazine
