A True Role Model

Review by Lily

If you like illustrated biographies filled with action and adventure, then this is the book for you! Nothing Could Stop Her: The Courageous Life Of Ruth Gruber is beautifully illustrated and has a lot of facts. Ruth Gruber had an amazing life that was very inspiring. She was a reporter from New York, and was very adventurous. Her travels include Germany, Austria, Poland, The Soviet Union, and Alaska. People who love to travel, this will be an exciting and relatable book. In addition to being brave, Ruth Gruber was also very smart. She earned a PhD in one year! Ruth Gruber wrote for the New York Times and The New York Herald Tribune. She also wrote a book about her travels. Ruth Gruber is a true role model and someone to look up to.

An inspiring person!

Review by LTinuviel

This terrific book celebrates a courageous trailblazer, Ruth Gruber, a journalist who went where nobody else did (including Nazi Germany and the Arctic part of Russia). Not only will you learn about this amazing lady (who lived into her 90s!), but the book also has many historical notes that will help you understand more about her times and places.
