Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine where I talk about books that I am eagerly anticipating!
This week, my WoW pick is…..
A Tyranny Of Petticoats by Jessica Spotswood
Published by Candlewick on March 8, 2016
Genres: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Anthology
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.
With stories by:
J. Anderson Coats
Y. S. Lee
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!
