Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin Manuel Miranda

Review by Hailey, age 14:

I listened to this book as an audiobook. In some parts it was confusing because the words were connecting to the pictures that I could not see. This book showed in many ways how the events and concepts shown in Hamilton are just as crucial in our everyday lives as they were in Hamilton's time. I enjoyed hearing how these concepts were applied to our lives. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I were to read the hard copy. Overall I really enjoyed this book.

In one word: Interesting

This book was powerful.
