An Amazon reviewer said:

"I read this book with reluctant readers that I teach and they loved it. They enjoyed learning about Eliza Hamilton and found it so interesting. It contains many facts about her life that my students found interesting and they enjoyed the format of chapters and found it easy to comprehend. I recommend this to any teacher or parent to purchase, especially if you have a reluctant reader or as an introduction to chapter books. Eliza Hamilton is an amazing historical figure but none of my students had heard of her until I read this book with them."
