Editorial Review:

Product Description:
From Book 1: Parents are saying:

"I just wanted to let you know that I received my print copy last night. I backed the book for my 6 year old daughter. My expectation was that we would need to hold on to it for a few years. I had to pry it out of her hands to get her to go to bed. The going is a bit slow, in part because the stories are the most advanced she has read, but in part because she is so excited she has to stop regularly to explain to me what is going on in the story. She has declared it her favorite book." Gary D.


"My daughter is on the couch presently, reading her copy, which I handed to her approximately 3 minutes ago. She is engrossed. Thank you. :)" Matthew McFarland


24 science fiction short stories for the middle grade reader from Hugo and Nebula winning authors as well as newer writers.

It’s time for a bigger universe.

Sally Ride, first American woman in space and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, famously said: “Young girls need to see role models in whatever careers they may choose, just so they can picture themselves doing those jobs someday. You can’t be what you can’t see.”

Girls need to read stories where any number of possible roles are modeled for them. Just as importantly, boys need to read stories where girls are active participants in adventures. And children of all colors and backgrounds need to know the future includes them.

"When I was a child, the school library had a Girls' Section, which included fairy tales, and a Boys' Section, which included all the science fiction. Things have changed, of course, but not enough. There is a strong need for science fiction, as opposed to fantasy, aimed at girls, especially in the middle grades. This anthology is an important contribution to the effort to fill that need, and I'm delighted to be a part of it."

~ Nancy Kress, winner of five Nebulas, two Hugos, a Sturgeon, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award
