Excellent annotated list of books for girls of all ages. From back cover: "In these books, girls and women are creative, capable, articulate, and intelligent, solving problems, facing challenges, resolving conflicts, and going on quests. They are not sidekicks or tokesn, waiting to be rescued; they are doing the rescuing. Nor are thay waiting for a male to provide a happy ending.
