★ "A captivating biography possessing as much verve as its inimitable subject." --Kirkus, STARRED review "Reef provides insight into the legend in an account that smartly takes both Bernhardt's theatrical art and her self-publicizing seriously....Reef does a particularly fine job of conveying the nineteenth century worlds in which Bernhardt moved and blossomed; she's also tactful but clear in her acknowledgment of Bernhardt's being a highly unreliable reporter of her own life....Overall it's an intriguing introduction to an early global celebrity, and many readers will want to read more, lured in by the Divine Sarah a century on." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "The easy-to-read text paints a striking picture of 19th and early 20th century Paris....A strong addition to any biography collection." --School Library Journal "In this concise, well-researched biography, Reef faithfully separates the documented from the speculative in tracing Bernhardt's life....this is a solid introduction to an unconventional feminist and international idol." --Publishers Weekly --
