Praise

“Meyer has clearly done her research…to create an absorbing narrative… (that) ably conveys the photographer’s grit, gumption and resourcefulness…this compelling offering…(is) a good choice for curricular connections as well as personal reading.” – School Library Journal

“This is an excellent guide for readers interested in having a career as a photographer. Meyer offers much useful advice for the aspiring photographer…this account of a courageous, trailblazing woman will appeal to most young adult readers.” – VOYA

“Historical novelist Meyer introduces readers to groundbreaking American photographer and photojournalist Margaret Bourke-White. Noted for her fearlessness and innovation, her gender did not seem to present a huge barrier to her ambition…This solid fictionalized biography should prompt readers to seek out Bourke-White’s work.” - Booklist

“Carolyn Meyer gives readers of historical fiction another portrait of a strong, independent woman…based on the real life of Margaret Bourke-White, the first female war photojournalist and famous LIFE Magazine photographer. The book…journeys through her…failures and successes as a commercial photographer during a time when women were supposed to be content with getting married and raising children….includes several reproductions of her images, along with notes from the author and picture credits.” –School Library Connection
