Amelia Bloomer Project announces feminist YA picks


The Amelia Bloomer Project List, designed to engage girls wherever they may be on their feminist journey, announced its YA choices for this year.

The young adult choices for the list include Alexandra Duncan’s Salvage, Gail Giles’ Girls Like Us, Christine Heppermann’s Poisoned Apples, A.S. King’s Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future, Isabel Quintero’s Gabi, A Girl In Pieces, Robin Talley’s Lies We Tell Ourselves, Sharon Biggs Waller’s A Mad, Wicked Folly, and G. Willow Wilson’s Ms. Marvel: No Normal, among others.

The books were chosen for the list based on their feminist content, excellent writing, appealing format and whether it was age appropriate for young readers.

The Amelia Bloomer Project is part of the Feminist Task Force of the American Library Association’s Social Responsibility Round Table. For more, visit the Amelia Bloomer Project’s website.
