A Name to Be Reckoned With
Nellie Bly by Stephen Krensky
Book DescriptionWhat are girls good for? Nellie Bly wasn't always Nellie Bly. First she was Elizabeth Cochrane, a shy girl from Cochran's Mills, Pennsylvania. All her life Elizabeth had been told, "girls can't do this" and "girls can't do that." Even the newspaper the Pittsburgh "Dispatch" said that all girls were good for was getting married and taking care of their families. But Elizabeth didn't believe it. She knew girls could take care of their families -- but they could also do much, much more. So one day she set out to prove it, and became Nellie Bly -- a name to be reckoned with.
