A Tyranny of Petticoats - Edited by Jessica Spotswood

Publisher: Candlewick Press
Publication Date: 8 March 2016
Pre-Order: Amazon | The Book Depository | Dymocks Australia

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.

(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!
