Excellent! Though it is categorized as a children's book and I am middle aged I found the book to be informative and well written. I encourage others to learn more about Ms. Wheatley and the encounters she had with Ben Franklin, George Washington and others during the American revolution. The book also provides insights on the dangers and arrogance of racism and hypocrisy. Dr. Cooper is a Canadian writer and I had the opportunity to meet with her a few months ago.
