Great book!

Review by Ally

This book is especially great for people who love graphic novels, people who love nonfiction World War Two stories and for people that like Autobiographies. This book is about a grandma named Dr. Ruth who takes two of her grandchildren to an amusement park. While on different rides the kids ask questions and talk about things that their grandma could relate to in stories from when she was a kid. Dr. Ruth is very inspiring because in her life she has faced so many challenges and yet is here today to tell the story of her success. When you read this story your emotions go around like a rollercoaster.

Very colorful and fun

Review by patgonh

The story is very inspire. Grandma is telling her grandkids all that had happened to her in WW2 and we should not forget it. She was a brave woman. She went to many little jobs until she went to the radio. Wonderfull!

Review by Beareader

This book was fun to read, and I learned about Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer. It's a quick book to read, which gives you more time to read the book over again (which I did.) This book is about Dr. Ruth and her life from when she was about 6 years old to the present day. It tells the story of how she lost her dad to the Nazis and had to flee Germany, her childhood home, alone as a young child. She became a housemaid, then a teacher, then a sniper, and so many other jobs that aren't mentioned in the book. There is also a timeline at the end of the book, so you can see her entire life on one page. I give this book five stars, and I recommend this book to anyone who hasn't read it yet.
