Praise

* “Pimentel tenders the story of Bobbi Gibb, the first woman to (surreptitiously) run the classic Boston Marathon, with illustrations that pay close attention to the route along the way. . . . It is as though Gibb is on one long runner’s high, and it’s good fun to run along with her. . . . [Archer’s] artwork is an eyeful, a deep-dish mixture of oil paint and collage with tissue paper and hand-stamped patterned papers as materials. In addition, she adds mile markers and elevation notes to convey the runners’ toils and why it is called “Heartbreak Hill.” . . . A bright salutation of a story, with one determined woman at its center.”Kirkus Reviews, starred review
