Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestseller She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger, a chapter book series about women who spoke up and rose up against the odds--including Rachel Levine!

Rachel Levine became United States assistant secretary for health in 2021. She is the first woman to serve in that position, and the first openly transgender person to hold a government position that needs Senate confirmation. With her new position, Rachel was also given the rank of admiral, making her the first openly transgender four-star officer in any of the eight U.S. uniformed services. But before any of that, Rachel was a girl who loved to help people and did everything in her power to do so. Though she faced many challenges, Rachel persisted through them all and showed kids of all genders that they too can achieve their dreams.

In this chapter book biography by critically acclaimed author Lisa Bunker, readers learn about the amazing life of Rachel Levine--and how she persisted
