TEEN TRAILBLAZERS: 30 Fearless Girls Who Changed the World Before They Were 20
Joan of Arc. Anne Frank. Cleopatra. Pocahontas. Mary Shelley. Many of these heroines are well-known. But have you heard of Margaret Knight who, when she was 12, invented a safety mechanism that was used in cotton mills all over the country? Or Élisabeth Vigée-LeBrun who, born in 1755, was a sought-after portrait artist by the age of 15 and developed her own style of painting in a time when both newness and female painters were frowned upon? What about Jackie Mitchell who was one of the first women to be signed to a minor-league baseball contract and struck out baseball legends Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig when she was 17 years old?
This fascinating book features 30 young women who accomplished remarkable things before their twentieth birthdays. Visually compelling with original illustrations, this book will inspire the next generation of strong, fearless women.
There has been a surge of interest in feminism and women’s rights over the last year, and this book is the first to focus on girls and young women under the age of twenty. Featuring young women from all backgrounds—both historical and contemporary—this is a book that will have a wide appeal.
TEEN TRAILBLAZERS will be published by Castle Point Books in a paper over board format with color illustrations throughout. It will have a page count of 128 pages. We have this positioned for an audience of ages 12-18. We will publish in October 2018.
