In the summer of 1916, two sisters, named Angeline and Adelaide Hanson, desperately want to prove that women are capable of doing things. To do this, they figure that the best way is to ride motorbikes from New York to Los Angeles. Since women do not ride motorbikes, or travel across the U.S in them, what better way to prove women can do things just like men? Unfortunately, several mishaps follow them and make their destination seem unreachable. Will being put in a jail cell or getting lost in the Salt Lake dessert stop them? Read the book and find out! 

Opinion: 

Ride for Rights is a unique book. It is historical fiction. Tara Chevrestt is the author of this significantly attention gripping book. There are some faults, but not too many. For example, when Angeline gets a kiss the author does not need to explain every detail of it; it takes the surprise of the kiss away from the readers. However, some parts in Ride for Rights are exceedingly interesting. Since Tara Chevrestt’s accomplished book did such a superior job on making Angeline and Adelaide seem like real people, the book is thrillingly believable. Some language in it does make the book seem a little non-age appropriate, therefore, Ride for Rights should be read by eleven, twelve, and thirteen year olds. Otherwise, this fascinating book is very intriguing and recommended highly.
