    Book Description:
    ★ "Anderson’s third-person text allows readers under Lizzie’s skin… Lewis’ dappled watercolors depict the action and extend it. A two-page author’s note fleshes out the history, including mentions of Claudette Colvin and Rosa Parks. Necessary." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

    ★ "Anderson’s vivid, well-researched narrative includes dialogue that "closely follows" accounts of Jennings’ experience that appeared in newspapers at the time. Using brighter hues than his usual palette, Lewis creates a series of vibrant, expressive watercolor paintings that transports viewers back in time, while portraying characters as distinct individuals. A memorable picture book introducing a nineteenth-century defender of civil rights." — Booklist, starred review

    ★ "… (T)he first victory in what would become a 100-year-long battle to end segregation on public transportation. Shimmering jewel-toned watercolors blur and delineate details in Lewis’s paintings." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
