"Debut author-illustrator Lewis focuses on Gloria Steinem’s early life and career.... Lewis’s watercolor and mixed-media art features glowing rose and tangerine shades, with compositions and fonts that call to mind 1960s-era graphic design. On one surreal spread, Steinem stands triumphantly on the keys of her typewriter, hands on her hips, red hair flowing. Endnotes hint at Steinem’s many more accomplishments. It’s a subtle ode to an iconic figure of quiet 'strength and enormous influence.'" — Publishers Weekly
