Fans of historical fiction will lose themselves in Hawes' sumptuously evoked Renaissance Italy, and aspiring artists will respond to Vini's amazement at "how full of drawings the world is." Booklist, ALA, Boxed Review
Hawes takes what is known of her (Lavinia Fontana, daughter of the painter Prospero Fontana) life and creates a fictionalized tale of a complicated adolescence.
This book is a good choice for middle school students and will appeal especially to girls who can relate to its strong, female protagonist.
