Ruby Shamir adapts SHE SAID into a young adult version that is about Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey sharing their journey from their early days when they were writing about the Harvey Weinstein investigation. These two women are the perfect role models for young aspiring writers. They speak of feminism and the movement of women writers while also sticking to importance of searching for the true answers.

CHASING THE TRUTH is a riveting novel that opens the reader's eyes to what Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey accomplished in their early careers. They helped pave the way for women writers. In the introduction they address how most jobs were held by men and many women were sexually harassed, but it was brushed under the table. Their courage to continue chasing the truth opened up the possibility for other women to speak up.

There are sensitive topics in this book with the investigation focusing on sexual harassment, so I do want to mention that trigger warning. In the back of the book, there are tips for aspiring journalists to shape their way of writing and investigating. The index in the back of the book shares where they got all their information from.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to all females who want to be journalists because Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey are inspirations. Their tale will help young journalists decide if this career is for them, and if so, then it shows how to search for the truth before composing an article.
