100 Immigrant Women Who Changed the World (Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls)

Elena Favilli. Rebel Girls, $35 (224p) ISBN 978-1-73332-929-3
The third book in the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls series, this volume profiles 100 women who at some point immigrated to a new country, seeking freedom, safety, or success. Favilli defines a rebel girl as someone trying to make a positive difference in the world, and she includes a wide array of subjects, organized alphabetically by first name, such as financial executive Chinwe Esimai, WWII spy for England Noor Inayat Khan, and table tennis world champion Angelica Rozeanu. Stylish illustrations from a variety of female artists show figures in their milieu—Karina Cocq presents hematologist Marcela Contreras surrounded by blood cells—and accompany brief, accessible biographies about and quotations from each woman. While readers won’t come away with an in-depth view of each life, and the subjects’ adopted countries lean overwhelmingly toward the U.S. and U.K., the book successfully includes a range of subjects. A volume full of inspiring role models. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 7–up. (Oct.)
