Gr 3–5—Attractive presentation and current subject matter will attract potential readers. However, many of the narratives are vague, with key details left out. Birth dates are given, but there is little information about where the women were born or grew up, other than that Taylor Swift lived in Pennsylvania and Malala Yousafzai in Pakistan's Swat Valley. Often the information is vague. Misty Copeland suffered cracks in her "leg bone." Alex Morgan played for a "college team" and a "professional team." The layouts are very colorful and illustrations plentiful, though. (Yousafzai includes an informative graphic about Pakistan.) The series is distinguished by its inclusion of some subjects less often covered in print biographies, especially principal ballerina Copeland and YouTuber Bethany Mota.
