Publisher: Candlewick Press
Publication Date: 8 March 2016
Amazon | The Book Depository | Dymocks Australia
impressive sisterhood of YA writers comes an edge-of-your-seat anthology
of historical fiction and fantasy featuring a diverse array of daring
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.

Elizabeth Wein (summary from Goodreads)
"15 Stories of Belles, Bank Robbers and Other Badass Girls" - definitely one I want to read! I haven't read a lot of anthologies, to be honest, but now and then I hear of one I just can't resist, and this one absolutely makes the list. For that title alone!
