Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-7-Set in early 20th-century San Diego, Pearl lives on a cattle and ostrich ranch. One day her brothers' advanced horseback riding skills get them recruited to be "Death-Defying Cowboys" in a director's moving pictures. While visiting the set, Pearl's horse gets frightened, and her unique way of remounting her horse gets her noticed. Soon, she too becomes an actress. From jumping out of windows to sliding down ropes, she discovers a love for stunts. Life as an actress, however, isn't all it's cracked up to be. Her relationship with Mary Mason, a girl in town, is strained at best, and Pearl's mama doesn't like her doing stunts. Can Pearl learn to balance her acting with real life? Inspirational, funny, full of bravery, and based off a true story, Wiley does a great job of bringing the time period to life. The characters are engaging, realistic, and witty. VERDICT Readers who like historical fiction, nuanced heroines, and humor will enjoy this book. Recommended for libraries where funny historical fiction is popular.-Kira Moody, Salt Lake County Lib.

Review

“Lively illustrations mirror the heart, humor, and bravery of Pearl herself. . . . A vivid snapshot of cinema’s early days.” —Publishers Weekly

A thrill ride excitingly grounded in film history, which is discussed in a fascinating afterword. Best of all is Pearl, a treasure of a protagonist whom readers will love for her candor and bravery as much as for her willingness to admit to her own failings.” —Booklist
