I read this book because it is one of the required text for the 4th grade literacy unit. I enjoy historical fiction but, for some reason, I did not look forward to reading this book. My feeling quickly fleeted. This is a good read. The author did a wonderful job conveying the emotion around in the fight against the "antis" and "Suffs" as the Susan B. Anthony amendment tries to pass. I appreciated that this was not the only historical focus. There was discussion of segregation and the treatment of blacks during this time as well as men's beliefs about women during this time. The descriptive language is not very rich but there are multiple moments in the text where the author uses words that make you pause and check your own understanding. This is a great book to introduce children to the fight people underwent to get women the right to vote.
