Her thought-provoking sidebars invite readers to put themselves in Ruth's shoes and see the world through a wider lens. Bright illustrations round out this inspiring look at an important woman of our time.” —Brandi Dougherty, New York Times best-selling children's book author

Her vision, persistence, and influence in the interpretation of human conduct will permeate the courts into the future.” —Alma Flor Ada, award-winning author, speaker, and educator (almaflorada.com)

Katz’s ability to deftly present difficult issues like anti-Semitism, sexism, and gender discrimination in an age-appropriate way makes this book unique. By not papering over these formidable obstacles, young readers will see that, while they may encounter altogether different roadblocks, no path to greatness is without them.
