Title: Bad Girls
Are the women that history regards as “bad girls” really all that morally corrupt or are they simply misunderstood? Our authors look at about 25 women throughout history, including Jezebel, Bloody Mary, Lizzy Borden and Mata Hari to see what history has to say about them and then debate whether they were really evil at heart or simply a victim of their time. Hey, Beyonce is on a campaign to ban the word “bossy” to describe girls, so imagine what these women were up against.
I call this a “wet your appetite book.” The description of each female villain is about five pages of larger type and gives readers a quick summary of their upbringing and exploits. An extensive bibliography in the back gives readers an easy way to find more material on these women.
The writing is straightforward and concise so most kids will easily be able to take it in. It is a fun book for girls who can explore female strength vs. a lapse in moral judgement.
Not what I would have expected from the author of How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight. She has a little more spunk that I expected … I like it.
