Biography


Our Eleanor

By: Candace Fleming

This is a biography of Eleanor Roosevelt's life. It was chock full of clippings of newspaper articles and picture. For people that like to see what they're reading about this would be perfect. It was written in kind of slow way but the story makes up for it.-Norah

Most Dangerous

By: Steve Sheinkin

Most Dangerous is about a man named Daniel Ellsberg that gave top secret government information to the press about how the US was losing in the Vietnam War. This book is full of exciting information about the government and the Vietnam War. It was kind of on the long side and was a challenge to understand but it was really good.-Norah

Epic Athletes: Alex Morgan

Alex Morgan dreamed of being on the women's national team, but she never imagined that dream would come true. This is a great biography that helps young readers get more into reading. It is a great, good sized story about Alex Morgan that shows her triumphs and downfalls of her career. This book is great and I loved how it made me feel like I could do anything if I really tried hard to get there.-Delaney

Notorious RBG is a great book to read if you like politics, woman's rights, or even are just fascinated by RBG's life in general.

This is a biography of the famous author Henry David Thoreau. He was a fascinating person and it is written in a way that is understandable and does not distract from the story. I really enjoyed this book.-Norah

Good Brother Bad Brother

By: James Cross Giblin

This is a story about Abe Lincoln's assassin's family. It's called GOOD BROTHER BAD BROTHER because it focuses on two people the older brother and the younger brother that killed Abe Lincoln. I thought it was super cool to read about Abe's assassin in a unbiased way with the full story of his life instead of just reading about how he killed Abe in a biography of Abe's life.-Norah
