A Tyranny of Petticoats

Author: Various (edited by Jessica Spotswood)
Release Date: March 29, 2016

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

With stories by:
J. Anderson Coats, Andrea Cremer, Y. S. Lee, Katherine Longshore, Marie Lu, Kekla Magoon, Marissa Meyer, Saundra Mitchell, Beth Revis, Caroline Richmond, Lindsay Smith, Jessica Spotswood, Robin Talley
Leslye Walton, Elizabeth Wein

Why I'm excited:
I love anthologies, so of course I'm excited for this one. A bunch of stories about badass girls written by a bunch of badass authors? Yes, please! WANT.

  1. Look like it could be really good. I have liked all of Andrea Cremer's books so far. My WoW

  2. I've got this on my TBR list too. Lots of great authors contributing so I think there will be something for everyone in this collection. I'll have to be sure to order it for my library's teen collection. Good pick!

  3. I love the sound of this! Yes to brave girls! We need more of this in YA. Great pick, Natalie!

  4. Looks like an awesome mix of gals!


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
