" This depiction of a determined young runner gives nice details of the obstacles Bobbi overcame in order to participate (unofficially) as the first woman runner in the Boston Marathon. Fun collage pictures have added mile markers that follow the marathon route. " said.

" Public library copyJust wanted more information about society at the time, Gibbs' life before and after, lots of things. Maybe good for elementary school, but for middle school I would like more information. " said.

" Gorgeous illustrations — love her hair swinging back with the speed of her movement. I loved how text is incorporated into the artwork: the words of rejection, the distance of the marathon run, the names of women who came after Bobbi. This was an exhilarating read. Students were entranced! " said.

" Thanks, Penguin, for sending along the ARC. Quick and easy nonfiction picture book about the first woman to run the Boston Marathon, even after being told that women weren't allowed to participate. Perfect girl power book! And I loved the timeline of the marathon with the elevation levels at the bottom of the pages....I " said.

" Fantastic book! I had no idea who Bobbi Gibb was before this book, and I'm really glad to have read it. What brave, strong women have come before me and my contemporaries, who have persisted against long-held stereotypes and misogyny. Imagine running, despite not being allowed, and beating 2/3 of the men! Good story, good handling of it. " said.

" This book is about the first woman to run (illegally) in the Boston Marathon. Her story is very inspirational and easy to identify with, since we were brought up in a similar time - like she couldn't wear pants to school, or find athletic shoes made for women. The artwork is wonderful. I highly recommend this book. " said.

" A book for the millennials! Inspiring and true. The thought that women and girls' physiology was not set up to run a full marathon is crazy. Bobbi Gibb proved the truth and started a trend that has only grown in size and pride. I love the last pages that celebrate the other pioneer women marathon runners. Fantastic book!Written by Annette Bay Pimentel, illustrated by Micha Archer and published as a Nancy Paulsen Book.#girlpower #BostonMarathon #history #biography #PB " said.

" Not so long ago, in 1966, females weren't allowed to compete in the Boston Marathon because the officials thought females weren't capable of doing so. Bobbi Gibb's love of running and dedication to prove them wrong gave her the incentive to cross the finish line. And she did but it still didn't change the minds until many years later. But she continued to race and more and more girls joined her. Readers will be cheering Gibb on as they learn of her story. " said.
