Audacity by Melanie Crowder

AudacityAudacity by Melanie Crowder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was my 27th book read as part of The 2016 Hub Challenge and it is a compelling historical fiction novel in verse about Clara Lemlich who came to the US from Russia with her family in the early 1900s. Clara is a spirited girl who loves learning and wants to make a difference. As a garment worker in NY who toils long hours for meager pay and realizes very quickly she wants to be a voice to help those suffering. Clara has "audacity" and spunk and gives, gives, gives to the workers during this dark time for the working masses. Students will love the Clara's zeal and unrepentant spirit when comes to helping workers better their working conditions.
