Review âWritten in an engaging style and full of pertinent, intriguing details, . . . this lively book profiles the women who have enjoyed, to varying degrees, the unique privileges and challenges of being first lady.â ( Booklist) âKrull brings to life the diverse personalities of her subjects and shines light on lesser-known first ladies who may not have dedicated middle grade biographies or their own.â (School Library Journal) âWhile portraying the first ladies as products of their times and classes, Krull also positions nearly all as women who pushed against gender-based expectations and prejudices. An inspirational lot, overall, of women who have âenhanced our country in many resplendent ways.ââ ( Kirkus ReviewsÂ (starred review)) About the Author Kathleen Krull has garnered starred reviews and awards for her many books.
