I loved this book but at the same time was deeply saddened by it, in that all her life Nzingha fought the Portuguese and yet they never managed to save their homeland (now part of Angola, Africa )from the invasion. This has happened all over the world, with many different invaders, Humans seem to like invading. But worse of all I like is the slave trade which still continues from countries like the Congo, to many places in the world. Many Angolan slaves were taken to Brazil and America. In Brazil and around the world, Nzingha's story is still remembered.

Very interesting story! A younger YA book, well-written and engaging. It's inspiring to know about some of the things that this woman did!
