AUDACITY Gets Three Stars!
Melanie Crowder

It's a third starred review for Melanie Crowder's AUDACITY! The BCCB review has so many lovely things to say about this YA novel told in "graceful, affecting poetry". They praise Melanie's "outstanding job of limning Clara's inner struggles". Best of all, they say "this will make an excellent complement to units on women's rights and the labor movement, but it will also satisfy readers in search of a well-told tale of a fierce heroine". We agree! Congratulations, Melanie!
