This is an outstanding book. It gives much more than just the life of this amazing woman. So many other details are included from the town she grew up in to explanation of the state the government was in at each phase of her life. I read this book in hopes that if someday I have the honor of portraying Eva in the musical 'Evita' I would be able to understand her background and do the part justice.

I am a sophomore in High School, and I really liked this book. It provides a lot of information about Eva Peron. It is well written, but sometimes it goes off in some parts. The authors did a good job of describing Eva's life accurately. It is very historic and is interesting to learn about her life and how she impacted the lives of Argentina. I liked how they added pictures so that I can get a better visual about her and her work. I wish that the authors provided more pictures into the book. It is fascinating to learn how she cared for the poor and Women's rights. I did a research project on her, and this book provided a handful of useful information. You will not regret reading this book.

I am a high school sophomore and I read this book to help me with my project on Eva Peron. I am not typically the type of person to pick up a book on a Saturday afternoon and start reading, so I wasn't expecting to like this book as much as I did. Fraser and Navarro did an excellent job keeping me interested in the story. Eva Peron lived a fascinating life and the authors did an excellent job making you feel like her childhood was all playing out before you. I found this book to be very informational and very useful for my project on her. One other thing that I also enjoyed was how the book was instilled with an unbiased opinions. It left room for you to decide what kind of person Eva was. It told from more than one viewpoint of how Eva was perceived by the Argentineans themselves. The one thing that I did not like was the information on Argentina's background and government in the beginning of each chapter. There was quite a bit of it that just dragged on. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and getting to learn about Eva Peron. I highly recommend this book because it is captivating and very informative.

I am a high school sophomore and I chose to read this book for my research project. Before the project I was very interested in what Eva Perón had done for Argentina. This book supplied me with all of the information I needed. It answered all the questions I had about her, as well as answered all the questions I needed to answer about her for my project. Fraser and Navarro did an amazing job at allowing you to decide what you believe about her, when it came to rumors, Fraser and Navarro gave you both sides of the story. This book discusses Eva's background, culture, and family as well as explains the impact Eva had on Argentina. At some points in the book, the information about government in Argentina became a bit excessive. Nonetheless, this book supplied me with all the information I needed. This book was descriptive and interesting.

I am a high school sophomore and I chose to read this book for my project. I thought this book was a really great book to read because of the many details it discussed about Eva's life.It discussed many topics about her life involving her husband Juan Peron which also gave  me a clearer look on why she became so popular. Fraser and Navarro did a really great job at separating the truths from the myths. Though some people still believe the myths about Eva Peron the book gave a great explanation on why the myths were just rumors. The book was also organized very well, I really liked the way they discussed about her family and then discussed her life in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The book gave me most of the information I needed which helped a lot with my project.It discussed many things that I didn't know about her which was great because i got to know her better and understand more of what she went though. It discusses her story in a simple and detailed way which helps me connect with the whole story without any confusion. Eva i think was the most influential person in her era and is a great role model for women. I would really recommend this simply because of the well written and simple the book is and i think will be for others who would want to learn more about her life story.

This book was not a challenging read, it is very simple to  read and understand. I am so happy that i picked this book. I love the way it tells her story. After reading this book I love Eva so much more  because of they depicted her life and her story. I knew a lot about Evita already because of the musical, but after reading this book I understand her so much better. Evita is one of my dream roles in a musical so doing this project has taught me so much more about her life.  I am so happy that I picked this book over others because not only was this book informational, it was also very enjoyable.  Evita was truly and amazing women and I greatly enjoyed reading this book.
