Our Stories, Our Voices: 21 YA Authors Get Real About Injustice, Empowerment, and Growing Up Female in America

Edited by Amy Reed. Simon Pulse, $18.99 (320p) ISBN 978-1-5344-0899-9
Twenty-one female YA authors and selected unpublished writers reflect on social justice, feminism, and coming-of-age in the U.S. Brandy Colbert discusses the lessons she has learned about the erasure of black individuals, Reed details experiences with sexual coercion, and multiple authors write about their outrage over President Trump’s sexism and racism (“Mexican men like my husband, my son, were called rapists by a man who embodies hate”). Collectively, the contributors provide a broad-ranging, ultimately galvanizing perspective on living as girls and women in today’s America. Ages 14–up. (Aug.)
