Product Details

Praise

“Maggs writes with a sly sense of humor and irreverence that keeps the text from ever feeling dry or dull. [Girl Squads] is upbeat and positive, itself a ‘journey of lady solidarity’ bound to educate and inspire readers of any gender.”—Shelf Awareness for Readers

“An impressively researched and fascinating compendium of history’s greatest gal pals.”—Booklist 

“A historical and fun look into some of the most incredible female teams, partnerships, and friendships throughout history.”—Book Riot

“[Girl Squads is] exactly the book you need if you’re a history buff with a decidedly feminist streak.”—Bustle

Praise for Wonder Women:

Wonder Women isn’t just filled with extraordinary tales of female scientists and inventors – though there are plenty of them – [Maggs] also includes sections on espionage and adventure, fields not traditionally associated with STEM.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“We could all stand to learn more about women in STEM fields, and Maggs, whose book The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy is a gem, is just the writer to lead the way.”—Bustle 

“Both thorough and easy to digest. . . . Maggs writes the descriptions of the women and their achievements in such a way that you’re inspired to take the ball and keep running.”—Nerdist 

“If you know a feminist, punk-rocking preteen who’s as concerned with body piercings as she is with book reports, pick up a copy of Maggs’s Wonder Women . . . a compelling collection of profiles highlighting history’s forgotten women of science, adventure, and espionage.”—The Village Voice

“Whether you want to know about suffragists, awesome historical lady ninjas, or the other butt kicking, trailblazing smarties in between, Wonder Women will have something for you!”—Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls

Praise for The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy:
“Read it cover to cover, and then make sure you share it with all the young girl geeks you know.”—Brit + Co
 
“A handy handbook for being an empowering and happy girl geek.”—Sweety High

“A great homage to anything and everything fandom, especially for those new to the genre.”—Reading Eagle 

“If you or someone else in your life could do with an inclusive, funny, super smart, and sweet introduction to the world of female geeks, look no further.”—The Mary Sue

“Through and through, Maggs manages to talk about feminism, fangirling, cons, lingo, and the general idea that you should be yourself, and do that unapologetically, with a great deal of lightheartedness and fun.”—The Frisky
