Reviews

Praise for She Persisted: Patsy Mink

"A propulsive narrative moves quickly through Mink's life . . . The book is decidedly inspirational in tone, yet the text includes brief, accurate, and age-appropriate explanations of the laws, people, and ideas that contributed to structural racism and oppression . . . A concise yet stirring biography." -Kirkus Reviews

"This biography's focus on perseverance, prejudice, women's issues, and uncomfortable historical events makes it an important addition to all libraries." -School Library Journal

"Keller's simple yet engaging text...is gentle and well suited to a young audience while never overshadowing the hard work and obstacles that stood in Mink's way. Endnotes share actionable steps readers can take to make change right now. An inspiring and engaging entry." -Booklist
