I will start out by saying that I bought this book because my friend has a story in it. It's called "The Robotics Badge" and it's great. Read it.

The common thread between the stories in this anthology is that they feature teenage girls involved in a tech discipline. There are a wide variety of settings including a 19th-century spy caper, a Mad Max-style drag race, a sci-fi Wizard of Oz retelling, and a teenage girl presenting her scientific findings to NASA. The stories vary in quality from "so bad that I'm actually mad that I read it" to "so good that I teared up at the end" so I averaged it for a 3-star rating.

Okay, so the thing is, I wrote one of the stories in this anthology (under a pen name, but yeah...). I am admittedly biased.

But more than that, it's a good collection with various representations of girls in STEM because there's more than one way to be a girl and more than one way to love science. This is the kind of collection you want to hand to a young reader because there will be something here that entertains. Adults might also enjoy these stories because if you're an adult like me, sometimes you just don't have the attention span anymore for long stories.

Happy Sigh

These stories give me hope.Though I have not been a teenager for a longer time than I will admit to, these wonderful stories illuminate the igenuinty, resourcefulness, grit and resiliency of young women so much so they are a balm for my soul especially during these times. Please, more.

It's a bit of a cheat since I wrote "Ines of Carter Station". But hey... great anthology for a good cause!
