A graphic novel for children ages 7 to 10. Rosalind Franklin was a British chemist during the 1940s and 1950s, when few women worked in the sciences.

Her “Photo 51” was central to understanding the double-helix structure of DNA, groundbreaking work she was never given credit for in her lifetime. This is her story.
