Having mixed feelings about this oneFirst of all these illustrations are not my jam but I get that they are a style and that style is well done so okay The book There's some fun things about this book I like the facts about the bridge I like the fact that this is a story being told and I like her as a characterI have mixed feelings about this way it's all put togetherPart of me likes the little factoids sprinkled here and there like what a cassion is and how they were sold terrible wire I feel like there's some good research happening here and I'm glad those details weren't cut but there needs to be to them and joining them together I also get that this woman got into this position because of the men in her life but it feels very male dominated at the beginning Her brother got her into school Her husband decided to marry her in six weeks He gets promoted to the job of bridge building etc It's like she doesn't get to lead her own narrative until everyone else is sick or deadwhich might just be because that's the way it happened but don't tell me her brother got her into school Tell me what kind of school it was and how well she did there I really like that her writings on women's issues and the fact that she got a law degree are includedI feel like there's a ton of potential in this book I wish it all hung together a bit better

I kind of hated this book Like I'm interested in getting the actual story now because it seems like it would actually be pretty fascinating if it was told in a way that didn't just leave me feeling confused and a little madSo my criticisms It's flippant about sexism feels like it spends way time on the men in Emily's life than on her actual accomplishments talks about her accomplishments in a weirdly dismissive way and makes her part in the building of the bridge very unclear I just think it's crafted poorly like it included information that should either have been cut out completely or expanded on the info on the faulty cables for one the pictures sometimes didn't fit well with the text etcThis feels like those picture books where the author feels like writing for kids is just dumbing stuff down It also didn't make up for this by having end notes that give you information
