Coco Chanel was different. She lived in an orphanage. She looked different. She was poor. But she had big dreams. She worked hard. She made “different” work for her. Everyone thought clothing for women should look a certain way. It was wartime in France and fabric was very expensive. So, Coco had an idea. She made clothes that were different. Coco Chanel changed the way that women dressed. People remember Coco and are glad that she was not afraid to be different.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards Program, 2009-2010)
