Product description

Review

* "Vividly imagines the lives of three girls who grew up to become famous for their achievements in science. . . . Atkins has a knack for turning a phrase. . . . Science is woven through the narratives, but within the fabric of the characters' daily lives and family struggles. . . . each of these three perceptive portrayals is original and memorable."--Booklist, starred review

"Evocative and beautiful. Highly recommended for fans of poetry about the natural world and the lives of real people."--School Library Journal

* "Distinguished for both content and elegance. . . . Readers are lured in by strong openings and vivid storytelling. . . . With each chaptered poem a gem in its own right, this collection will appeal to poetry lovers as well as awakening scientists."--BCCB, starred review

"Atkins guides readers through the themes that connect the women's scientific quests, from a boundary-pushing desire for knowledge . . . to the satisfaction they find in their work."--Horn Book

"Inspirational and informative, Atkins shows how pursuing one's passion for science, math, or any field considered nontraditional is worth the risk."--Kirkus Reviews
