Grandmothers will want to share this with their girls
Reviewed in the United States on July 9, 2015
This is such a clever anthology. I remember growing up in a world where girls were never good at math and science, so I made sure to hide my report card (with its straight As) from friends on the bus. I loved school, excelled at math and science, but felt embarrassed to let anyone know. The most popular girls looked beautiful and tried to sound dumb. UGH! If we'd had stories like the ones in this book to encourage us to stretch our brains and do incredible things, just think how much more we'd have accomplished.
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.
