Booklist says that Shark Lady The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Became the Ocean's Most Fearless Scientist is, "The writing flows well, keeping a clear focus on Clark and her dream, while including pertinent details from the career of “the Shark Lady,” known for her groundbreaking research and her work to change people’s perceptions of sharks… A lively introduction to an American scientist."

The full review will appear in their May 2017 print issue but will also be available on their website on May 3rd.

At 9 years old, Eugenie Clark developed an unexpected passion for sharks after a visit to the Battery Park Aquarium in New York City. At the time, sharks were seen as mindless killing machines, but Eugenie knew better and set out to prove it. Despite many obstacles in her path, Eugenie was able to study the creatures she loved so much. From her many discoveries to the shark-related myths she dispelled, Eugenie's wide scientific contributions led to the well-earned nickname "Shark Lady"
