Criss-cross 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.

It’s no secret that I love anything Jessica Spotswood writes so when I heard about this anthology, I got excited.  Then, I saw who else would be contributing stories and I got realllly excited!  It’s  like a who’s who of excellent YA!  I am dying to get my hands on this one!

About Jessica Spotswood

I heart books, board games, tea, the color pink, theatre, twirly dresses, and bells chiming the hour. I live in Washington, DC with my playwright husband and a cuddly cat named Monkey. I work part-time as a children’s library associate for the DC Public Library. I’m frighteningly enthusiastic.
