Eleanor Roosevelt was very like a diamond in the rough. She wasn't much to look at on the outside, but she was stunningly beautiful on the inside. She was strong, multi-faceted, rare, and flawed.

Author Candace Fleming did a wonderful job of showing all aspects of the amazing Mrs. Roosevelt, from her childhood to her death. This was a clearly unbiased portrait, backed by research and notes galore. Fleming does not patronize her young readers. She shows the good, the bad, and the ugly about one woman's life.

The best part about the book is its scrapbook style layout, which allows the reader to peek at little snippets at a time, or read long passages. Full of rare photographs, letters, and little known facts, this book is one of the best biographies I've ever read!
