So blown away by all amazing contributors of this anthology. Some as young as twelve! I felt uplifted and empowered after reading this and will reach for it on the bleak days where it's hard to hang onto hope for our country's future. ...more

I adored this addition to the series! It's all about being a strong woman and raising strong girls and women in 2018.

Every girl and woman should read this book to feel better about being female! ...more

This book was amazeballs and every little girl, young girl, preteen girl, teenage girl, young, middle, and old girl should read this. Many amazing stories of how to survive and thrive as a female in this country! Some of these authors are teenagers! And they wrote such heartfelt and honest messages!
