15 Stories of Belles, Bank Robbers & Other Badass Girls
From an impressive
sisterhood of YA writers comes an edge-of-your-seat anthology of
historical fiction and fantasy featuring a diverse array of daring
Crisscross America --
on dogsleds and ships, stagecoaches and trains -- from pirate ships off
the coast of the Carolinas to the peace, love, and protests of 1960s
Chicago. Join fifteen of today's most talented writers of young adult
literature on a thrill ride through history with American girls charting
their own course. They are monsters and mediums, bodyguards and
barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They're
making their own way in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in
their arsenals, facing down murderers and marriage proposals. And they
all have a story to tell.

was a really neat anthology of historical fiction stories by some of my
favorite YA authors! I just loved the idea of such a wide variety of
strong heroines and settings. My favorite short story was definitely
Marie Lu's one about an Inuit girl! Most of these could easily be full
novels and/or awesome movies, though. "- Cait- Goodreads.com
