Publisher's Summary

From an impressive sisterhood of YA writers comes an edge-of-your-seat anthology of historical fiction and fantasy featuring a diverse array of daring heroines.
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.

What the Critics Say

"Bahni Turpin takes command in this tour-de-force narration of 15 stories by 15 authors about bold American girls.... Turpin gives no sign that the range of characters, eras, situations, and emotions is anything other than easy. She channels, complete with believable accents and intonations, an Inuit girl running for her life, the Three Fates temporarily transformed into prairie girls, a 1960s hippie protester, and a nineteenth-century gorgon murderess, among many others. This is addicting listening for young adults and adults alike." (AudioFile)
