Review: Georgina and the Dragon by Lee Kingman

Synopsis: Georgina was named after her great-grandmother who had helped to bring the vote to women in Idaho. When the government issued a stamp in honor of her famous ancestor, Georgine was invited to attend the official ceremonies.
Determined to earn her plan ticket, Georgine set out to find work. She soon discovered that boys had all the jobs. Undaunted, she went on to prove her enterprising a girl can be. From walking the enormous wolfhound no boy could handle to tackling the town's fiery-tempered old dragon lady, Georgina turned boy and girl roles upside down and started all sorts of hilarious happenings in her town!

Review: This was a delightful and amusing book. Georgina is just the sort of girl I'd want as a daughter; spunky, fiery, no brain-to-mouth filter and very tenacious. She managed, through her perseverance, to change the lives of those around her, for the better, including her own. I recommend this for young girls, 9-12, who like adventure and humor and who might feel they can't find their place in the world.
