Nellie Bly was a journalist and one of the first investigative reporters ever. She went undercover to expose wrongdoing and famously raced around the world so she could write about the experience for her newspaper. Reaching for her dreams wasn't easy. But Nellie never gave up, no matter how many obstacles she faced — and she helped others along the way.
In this chapter book biography by New York Times bestselling author Michelle Knudsen, readers learn about the amazing life of Nellie Bly. The She Persisted series, inspired by Chelsea Clinton's enormously popular picture book, celebrates women who stood up, spoke up and rose up against the odds! With black and white interior illustrations throughout by Gillian Flint, this early chapter book will inspire young readers to imagine how they too could change the world.
