This verse novel will slice you up. Visceral, raw, and unique, this is the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, one of the first professional woman painters (active in the 16th century) and one of the first women in documented history to bring her sexual assailant to court and WIN. A book about the process of art, healing from trauma, and growing up in a world that unrelentingly asserts that you're not good enough, even as it uses you up.
