    Brilliant storytelling of a heartbreaking account

    I learned of Artemisia Gentileschi and her remarkable achievements that were never recognized nor truly honored, even post-humously, several years ago. Her Renaissance era paintings are stunning, better in many cases than Caravaggio or Rembrandt. Knowing what she endured, what she accomplished, at such a young age without any recognition, makes her a superior artist to the masters we're taught to appreciate. So when I heard about this book, I was immediately excited. Even a fictionalized account of her story had to be good. My heart sank when I read it was verse, and YA, however. Two of my least favorite genres. Desperate for Gentileschi's story, I went ahead and gave it a try anyway, and I'm so glad I did; it could not have been told anymore powerfully, or perfectly, than this. My heart ached the whole time, but I devoured the book all in one sitting. If there was only one award I could give out this year, and it's currently January, I would give it to Blood Water Paint.
