Should someone tell you, 'You fight like a girl', show 'em how it's done! That's what this book does! I have always has to fight like a boy, growing up with a brother and mostly boy cousins, but I grew up on Girl Power (Punky Brewster, for those who know who that is) and this books has stories just like that. The Introduction, written by Anne Lyle, is like my past on paper- from the love of Doctor Who's Tom Baker to Ripley of the Alien series, having been originally made for a man, but made better because he was changed into a woman. Girls can throw down too, and this book shows just how bad they can be.
There are sixteen stories in this book and honestly, I can't tell you which I loved the most. Each fantastic story is written with a woman hero in mind. First, I have to admit, the cover caught my attention more than anything else.
The fact that FIRST, it's a paper doll and she's giving you the stink-eye. I love it- plus I have Ginger-Envy so that makes her just that much better. Then she's got all the toys a tomboy, like myself, would want- depending on the situation. She's tough and has everything she needs to stand on her own feet, which is what this book's all about.
If I had to pic one story that was the absolute best for me, I'd have to say it was Archer 57, by Lou Morgan. Dystopian stories seem to be the way to go these days, but this one is different. It's very short and all about revenge during the days of war. There's no explanation on why the war is happening, just a war raging wishing a scorned wife and mother's heart. She's been robbed of her life: her husband, then her son and eventually herself! She fought for people who then turned on her... leaving her to wander the tunnels, only to toss firecrackers and even bombs at her! It's a sad but victorious story that stood out to me. I loved it.
These stories aren't your usual. A few come from a collection or trilogy and others are just stand alone. Either way, Fight Like A Girl , by Joann Hall, is a cool book to read and I think you'll enjoy it as much as I!📚
