    It wasn't that long ago that women weren't allowed to work certain jobs. But Sally Ride set out to prove that just because that was the case, it didn't have to be that way. Through hard work and constantly having to prove her worth, she became the first American woman in space. And she made it her life mission to make sure young people- boys and girls- knew that science was for everyone. It wasn't that long ago that women weren't allowed to work certain jobs.

    As a children's librarian, I'm working my way through this series as it becomes available to me. While it makes sense that each is written by a different author who can give her own version of this subject's life story, this does lead to inconsistency of quality in my experience. That being said, this was one of my favorites so far! Covers Sally Ride's life from youth, up through her time at NASA, and even into what she accomplished afterward.

While it makes sense that each is written by a different author who can give her own version of this subject's life story, this does lead to inconsistency of quality in my experience. That being said, this was one of my favorites so far! Covers Sally Ride's life from youth, up through her time at NASA, and even into what she accomplished afterward. Accurately mentioned that Sally Ride was the first *American* woman in space and that the Russians did actually "beat" us in that regard. Too often, Americentric treatments of Ride gloss over that in favor of pure fawning. We can celebrate our successes while sticking to the full truth. Especially enjoyed reading what Ride's ideas were for what we should be doing going into the future of space travel. Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for this eARC in exchange for my honest review.

    I do love this She Persisted series, which now has at least eight books! Between Chelsea Clinton's introduction, the wide range of woman portrayed, and the quick, fun text with great illustrations, I cannot stop reading these. I was a huge fan of the Childhood of Famous Americans books and read just about all of them in my elementary school library, so these are just the ticket for young, feminist fans of biographies.

(There's already one about Nellie Bly for my daughter Nell, whose real name is Eleanor, after Roosevelt!) That said, these are a bit young for my readers. I do want to mention O'Shaughnessy's. Sally Ride: A Photobiography of America's Pioneering Woman in Space October (2015). If you don't have this one for a middle school, you really should. It has so many personal photographs, and really feels like the way that all future biographies should be formatted!

    This book had a lot of great information about Sally Ride in a quick and easy format for younger readers. I do think that the very beginning and the end notes came off a bit preachy but the rest of the book was inspiring and educational. I could see this book inspiring young girls to get involved in science (or really to just try new things). This would be a worthy purchase for my school library and I'm interested in reading some of the others from the series.
