Fiction for Young Feminists
Feisty girls overcoming great odds, as chosen by author Maggi Gibson
The books on this list are all books I've read myself and totally loved. Some feature girls who are wonderfully feisty, even though at times they might be wrong-headed. In others, the girl is going through an incredibly hard time, and the problems life throws are almost enough to break them. All of them are books I wish I'd had the chance to read in my early teens.
