Summary
"Born in 1864, Nellie Bly was a woman who did not allow herself to be defined by the time she lived in, she rewrote the narrative and made her own way. Bly's story is told through Miriam, a fictionalized female student at the Columbia School of Journalism in 1921. While interviewing the famous journalist, Miriam learns not only about Bly's more sensational adventures, but also about her focus on self-reliance from an early age, the scathing letter to the editor that jump-started her career as a newspaper columnist, and her dedication to the empowerment of women. In fact, in 1884, Bly was one of the few journalists who interviewed Belva Ann Lockwood, who was the first woman candidate for a presidential election--a contest that was ultimately won by Grover Cleveland--and Bly predicted correctly that women would not get the vote until 1920. Of course Bly's most well-known exploits are also covered--how she pretended to be mad in order to get institutionalized so she could carry out an undercover investigation in an insane asylum, and Bly's greatest feat of all, her journey around the world in 72 days--alone--which was unthinkable for a woman in the late 19th century. As Miriam learns more of Bly's story, she realizes that the most important stories aren't necessarily the ones with the most dramatic headlines, but the ones that, in Nellie's words, "come from a deep feeling." This beautifully executed graphic novel paints a portrait of a woman who defied societal expectations--not only with her investigative journalism, but with her keen mind for industry, and her original inventions"--
