Review of Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets, Edited by Paige Daniels and Mary Fan

Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and GadgetsBrave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets by Paige Daniels

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fantastic concept for an anthology. A book that highlights a diverse group of intelligent young heroines is sure to be a hit among youngsters and adults. The stories contained within Brave New Girls (Tales of Girls and Gadgets) are as varied as the contributing authors are. All are unique and all include positive, scientifically inclined role models.

I especially love the fact that all of the proceeds go to a great cause – a scholarship fund through the Society of Women Engineers. Sharing the idea that girls can excel in male-dominated fields and have the ability to become scientists, inventors, space explorers, programmers, etc. just as boys do is an admirable basis for a book geared towards teens of either sex.

I would recommend this book for teens and lovers of YA SciFi. Brilliantly empowering! received a complimentary copy of this book from one of the authors in exchange for an honest review.
