"When I finished this novel, I knew I would be haunted and empowered by Artemisia Gentileschi's story for the rest of my life." —Amanda Lovelace, award-winning author of the princess saves herself in this oneHer mother died when she was twelve, and suddenly Artemisia Gentileschi had a stark choice: a life as a nun in a convent or a life grinding pigment for her father's paint.She chose paint.By the time she was seventeen, Artemisia did more than grind pigment. She was one of Rome's most talented painters, even if no one knew her name. But Rome in 1610 was a city where men took what they wanted from women, and in the aftermath of rape Artemisia faced another terrible choice: a life of silence or a life of truth, no matter the cost. He will not consumemy every thought.I am a painter.I will paint.Joy McCullough's bold novel in verse is a portrait of an artist as a young woman, filled with the soaring highs of creative inspiration and the devastating setbacks of a system built to break her. McCullough weaves Artemisia's heartbreaking story with the stories of the ancient heroines, Susanna and Judith, who become not only the subjects of two of Artemisia's most famous paintings but sources of strength as she battles to paint a woman's timeless truth in the face of unspeakable and all-too-familiar violence. I will show youwhat a woman can do.★"A captivating and impressive debut about a timeless heroine." —Booklist, starred review★"Belongs on every YA shelf."—SLJ, starred review
