" Josephine Baker really led a fascinating life, and this biography would be a good learning opportunity in social studies about WW2 and the French resistance and her role. Also raises questions about the accuracy of information and how biographers compose the story of someone's life. I had trouble getting into it and staying interested, but it was a good comprehensive look at her interesting life. " said.

" I didn't realize this was written for kids when I put it on hold, and I think that shows in the writing tone. However, that makes me appreciate some of the things within it more- Josephine's bisexuality and a potential sexual assault jump out at me. A thorough, even-handed, and quick read, it did leave me a little disappointed not to have read a more exciting biography. " said.
