  18. I read a book called “Charles and Emma: Darwin’s Leap of Faith” by Deborah Heiligman. It is a biography of Charles Darwin. In the book, Charles is and always has been a scientific man. On the other hand, his wife, Emma, is religious. When Darwin publishes his Theory of Evolution and his Theory of Natural Selection, it causes controversy among those who are religious and those who are not. I think people would enjoy this book if they’re into science because it talks a lot about how Darwin formed his theories through his observations. The book also shows how people with different ideas can still get along.

  21. One of the main great accomplishments that King has done was defeat Bobby Riggs in the battle of the sexes. At this time, many people discriminated women and thought that men deserve more rights than women. This was a struggle for billie (who is a girl) through the years of her training and tournaments that she has played in. A man named Bobby Riggs who was the best tennis player for a couple years claimed that he can beat any of the top female players, and challenged King. (You can watch a couple of clips on youtube of their match) In the end, Bobby over-estimated King and Billie Jean King won.
