Frida: ¡Viva la vida! Long Live Life!
Winner Description: 
by Carmen T. Bernier-Grand. (Marshall Cavendish, 2007)
Winner Blurb: 

Bernier-Grand uses lyrical free-verse poems, which comprise the heart of a well-rounded biographical work for older children.  The poems, written in impassioned first-person voice, follow the arc of Frida Kahlo's life from birth to death.  The opening birth poem and the closing death poem set a tone of self-determination firmly placing her in history, in her family and in her country.
