The Bravest Woman in America (Junior Library Guild Selection (Random House))

The Bravest Woman in America - Marissa Moss, Andrea U'Ren Ida Lewis grows up in a lighthouse and her father, the lighthouse keeper, teaches her how to do all the things those manning a lighthouse must know. It comes in handy when a boat of boys gets in trouble near the lighthouse one stormy night.“The boys’ faces were white with cold, their lips blue. One passed out, lying limp on the bottom of the boat.Ida didn’t think. She rowed---harder and faster than she ever had. The waves crashed over her head, tilting the boat along a wall of green and gray. Ida kept on rowing, frantic to get them all to safety.”Based on a true story, this is the tale of a girl who grew up to be a hero, saving many lives.
