Amazing Women: 101 Lives to Inspire You
‘Amazing Women’ stands out from the other books that I’ve featured as it feels more accessible and current for a young teen reader. Whilst other books in this female focused fact collections have tended to focus on more historical figures, this collection includes many contemporary young and instantly recognisable women like Zoella, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé who provide a gateway to encourage readers to pick up this book and explore. Yet it still features those incredible women whose bravery and conviction have had a significant impact in history from Emmeline Pankhurst to Mother Teresa they have all left their mark in the world and changed it for the better. It recognises women who are leaders, pioneers, creators and trailblazers in an honest and informed way inviting the reader to cast their own judgement and encouraging them to find out more about these accomplished women. Stunningly produced with bold, contemporary illustrations and filled with engaging information this deserves a place on every teen’s bookshelf.
