I absolutely loved this book! I found myself highlighting passages as I was reading. Noelle's characterizations and dialogue paint a vivid picture of her Year With Eleanor. There were so many layers to discover while reading each chapter. The book was certainly witty; but I found it smart and insightful throughout. Talking to the young boy on the subway or debating whether to speak to the relative of a cancer patient. This book delves into what everyone is often thinking and feeling, but Noelle Hancock was able to put these feelings into words. Readers will be able to identify with Noelle's descriptions of her relationships with close friends and people she meets along her journey.

Each chapter weaves seamlessly between Noelle's journey and Eleanor Roosevelt's rich life and inspirational quotes. Throughout the book there are anecdotes and insights for everyone to enjoy.

This is a MUST READ!!

    A great, fun read

    I was worried that this would be too chick-lit-ish. I feel that I'm past enjoying that genre. But it really wasn't. It was well-written and full of self-discovery, but also funny enough to keep you smiling if not laughing. I enjoyed her honesty about her experiences, and while it didn't change my entire life, it did remind me not to be so timid and afraid of things. I wouldn't classify this as historical fiction, but I did really enjoy that there were interesting bits about Eleanor Roosevelt's life in every chapter. I knew little about her, and I'm glad for what I learned.
