||Great Books for Girls
||These books contain strong female characters, "girls and women who are creative, capable, articulate and intelligent, solving problems, facing challenges, resolving conflicts and going on quests. This resource book is divided by age group/difficulty level. They are not sidekicks or tokens waiting to be rescued; they are doing the rescuing." Nor are they waiting for a male to provide a happy ending; they are fashioning their own stories and their own endings.
