Women fought to be equal in everything and made fantastic strides. Too bad many of their preconceived ideas of which subjects they'd tackle left them out in the cold. As the world changes and girls read incredible stories like the ones in this book, their self images will allow them to tackle any kind of problem with gusto.
I found it interesting that many of the short stories in this collection were written by men. They obviously want their daughters to live in a world where anything is possible for them. Kudos! I'm going to make sure my granddaughter reads this collection. Yes. I'm a grandmother and writer, and I enjoy reading YA fiction because it's full of life. Get a copy of this book for yourself and then share it with your favorite girls.
These stories amazed me, one after another, with how much world-building, character development, and human experience the authors could cram into such small parcels of parchment*, on top of the well-plotted tales of their young heroes' brave exploits; young women bright of intellect and spirit. And, though each and every tale brought the hero's quest to a satisfying conclusion, each left me hungry to witness her next move. I'll be on the lookout. In the meantime, I'll have no problem reading them all over again.
*Okay, I read it on Kindle, but parchment's what arced from my fingertips, and I've never been good at measuring cyber-real-estate.
From the blurb you can see it consists of several short stories about girls overcoming obstacles and ignoring societal barriers to live the lives they choose. Like all compilations, I felt these stories varied from 3 Stars up to a full 5 Stars, but I actually enjoyed them all. I feel it is a great collection and recommend it to every parent for boys and girls alike.
