“Street Car To  Justice” by Amy Hill Hearth is an interesting historical biography of Elizabeth Jennings, her life and the important things that happened in it. Elizabeth Jennings was a very strong,woman. As she grew older Elizabeth became very important person and an important part of history.

Elizabeth Jennings refused to leave a segregated streetcar in Five Points, Manhattan.She was removed by a conductor, and a police officer. Elizabeth was badly bruised and injured. After the conflict her case was taken to the court. She was represented by a lawyer Chester A. Arthur who would become the twenty-first president later on. At the end of the book… tricked you! I would never spoil the biography!

This book is really interesting and educational. I recommend it for ages eight and above because people under the age of eight might not understand the book. Also, it may be too mature for them. I read this book at least five times, yes it was that good! I hope that if you read “Streetcar To Justice” you will enjoy it as much as I did.
