Reviews

"Strong female ties form this story's core. Through these relationships...Diamant brings to life a piece of feminism's forgotten history [and reminds us] there will always be those who try to prescribe what you should be. Good friends are those who help you find out for yourself."--Good Housekeeping
"Diamant infuses [The Boston Girl] with humor and optimism, illuminating a wrenching period of American progress through the eyes of an irresistible heroine."--People
"A graphic, page-turning portrait of immigrant life in the early twentieth century...an inspirational read."--Booklist
"The story of every immigrant and the difficulties of adapting to and accepting an unfamiliar culture."--Huffington Post
"Enjoyable fiction with a detailed historical backdrop."--Kirkus
