I Assent to this Book!
I am watching my ten year old daughter read this book, and I smile, with some pride and hope for the future. At certain points she reads out what were even for me surprising details: RBG was one of only 9 women in her law school class of more than 500. RBG saw signs, growing...

I loved how this book made a point that even though she often disagreed with Justice Scalia, they were still quite good friends. A great message that we can disagree on things and not hate each other. But the book is also so much more than that.

"Disagreeable? No. Determined? Yes."
I've always been a fan of RBG, so I really enjoyed reading this book. When I think powerful female, RBG always comes to mind. This book definitely reflected that through the life events that the author chose to focus on.
What was striking, and most definitely d...

Terrifically told and boldly designed. (Love the detail that it all started with reading in the library for RBG.)

Bravo; well done. Lots of information, but engagingly and accessibly told. Even more in the appendices, including photos. A little too simple, I think, for the 10-11 year olds who are usually assigned, iirc, a biographical research report, but maybe a good introduction for them, and definitely a...

I wasn't going to review I Dissent because I'm trying not to "cheat" in this year's GR challenge but my 7-year-old daughter asked to read it TWICE, which is unheard of these days unless a book involves wars amongst the stars or Lego ninja, so I wanted to add to the sky-high ratings. When I brough...
