Okay, this book is fire. Admittedly, I had only basic knowledge about Harriet Tubman before reading this book, and usually books about history aren't my thing. But this is a book about an incredible woman who did the impossible over and over, and who will hopefully soon be featured on the $20 bill as she rightfully should. Told in a voice that is accessible to young readers (and people like me), I highly recommend this book to literally everyone. Harriet Tubman deserves much more recognition, and this is how we start.

P.S. I listened to the audiobook version, and it was wonderful!
