    Let s talk about honeybees A couple of years ago, my husband the science teacher was talking to my son about bees My husband is allergic, and we don t know if my son is because he s never been stung But he was trying to assuage my son s fears by explaining the importance of bees to our existence How important are they Very Like, if the bees go away, there goes the planet That is simplistic, I know, because bees aren t the ONLY things that pollinate, but Anyway, bees have been on my mind Let s talk about honeybees A couple of years ago, my husband the science teacher was talking to my son about bees My husband is allergic, and we don t know if my son is because he s never been stung But he was trying to assuage my son s fears by explaining the importance of bees to our existence How important are they Very Like, if the bees go away, there goes the planet That is simplistic, I know, because bees aren t the ONLY things that pollinate, but Anyway, bees have been on my mind So as I started reading Brave New Girls, a short story anthology edited by Paige Webster and Mary Fan, I started with a short story called The Hive, by Kate Lansing Fi lives in a not too distant future where all the trees are dead, replaced by metal sculptures Protection for the honeybees is Fi s passion, and she uses all her scientific and hacker skills to achieve it And Fi is my introduction to a whole myriad of young female characters, all of them with the wiles, intelligence, bravery and bravado I can appreciate and expect in my literature these days These characters come from fictional worlds of now and then and yet to be, and they are fantastic representatives for the book s purpose increasing STEM opportunities for girls The book s proceeds go to a Scholarship fund through The Society of Women Engineers What are these women doing They are all computer savvy, and many live in futuristic worlds on far reaching planets They must survive and thrive with odds against them, including that predator also known as teenage angst Some of the storylines include 1 Viala, a girl with scientific genius who has to hide her intelligence because her father used his scientific creations to kill people 2 Katie and Rachel, two girls from different eras one from the 22nd century and one from the 1942 Warsaw Ghetto working together in a storybook Martian world to save their planet using WWII electronics 3 Meg, whose favorite science teacher died of lung cancer and left her a time machine Which she now hides in her basement 4 Philly, hacker extraordinaire who uses her parolee job at the cemetery to fight an evil, greedy, world killing corporation, playing a little Robin Hood while avenging her friend s death and her father s ruination This story has a cool element in that in Philly s world, the cemetery has holograms above the gravestones with messages from the loved ones 5 Jane Colt, the character from Mary Fan s Jane Colt sci fi series, stars in the final story This tale combines your favorite teen movie themes, human girls with robot parts, virtual reality, a spectacular fight scene, and even one of those examples of karma that leave you smiling and nodding that s right, take that It s interesting to note almost as many male authors writing kickass, badass girls in this collection as women For example, Stephen Kozeniewski gives us a fabulously fun story called The Keys to the Stars, where the reader follows the life of science nut Judy Kraybill Judy might be a significant University Professor now, but she used to be a brilliant kid living in the 1950 s who could decipher important messages From space So my Konundrum for the week is this WHY aren t therekickass, badass girls in literature and film While there may be some genetic differences between genders in terms of base brute strength, both sides can dominate equally in the brains department Because of too much history as far as desperately demure damsels in distress, it s so muchFUN to read stories like these I only talked about seven of them here, and there are eighteen stories to choose from As a proud owner of everything Buffy the Vampire Slayer since her 1992 inception plus I just re watched Geena Davis in The Long Kiss Goodnight girls totally rule in that action flick , I was excited to see Brave New Girls on the bookshelves, and to learn the reasons behind ITS inception Anyone who wants some fun with science, space, potential pasts and possible futures, all with truly cool female characters running the show should check out Brave New Girls Promote some STEM in your life, and the lives of girls around you Kelley

    This book is great for teens that love science I teach high school science and just put this in my classroom The short stories have teens that use science to overcome dystopian societies, crack codes, create inventions, investigate cyberspace, repair robots, work with holograms and even save the honeybees.

    So this is a collection of short stories and it s really awesome because they re all about badass girls What s better than sci fi settings and badass girls Nothing I tell you I had to read this because of the premise, I mean did you see the description Let s show the world that girls, too, can be tomorrow s inventors, programmers, scientists, andYes, let s.I m bad at reviewing short story collectionsI never know if I should review each individual story or want and then it s hard So this is a collection of short stories and it s really awesome because they re all about badass girls What s better than sci fi settings and badass girls Nothing I tell you I had to read this because of the premise, I mean did you see the description Let s show the world that girls, too, can be tomorrow s inventors, programmers, scientists, andYes, let s.I m bad at reviewing short story collectionsI never know if I should review each individual story or want and then it s hard Short stories are harder to review than full ones therefore this will be a short review.Every story brings something new while keeping the theme of awesome girls in great, if sometimes, odd situations You have the girl who just got out of jail after trying to rob this big company The girl who s dad s were just killed and she s determined to prove it was murder And so on and so forth And guys, I know you love this, there s SO much diversity Obviously, some stories are slightly better than others but there wasn t one I disliked, if I were reviewing them separately on a scale of 1 to 10 none would get less than a five I did have a couple favorites, Courage Is by Evangeline Jennings, Lyra by Lisa Toohey, and Graveyard Shift by Kimberly G Giarratano.Basically, this was a really fun read that I had to read because it s all about girls being badass I highly recommend it to girls who are badasses haha and anyone who loves sci fi and short stories and diversity I received a review copy of this book from one of the authors to review honestly

    What a fantastic concept for an anthology A book that highlights a diverse group of intelligent young heroines is sure to be a hit among youngsters and adults The stories contained within Brave New Girls Tales of Girls and Gadgets are as varied as the contributing authors are All are unique and all include positive, scientifically inclined role models I especially love the fact that all of the proceeds go to a great cause a scholarship fund through the Society of Women Engineers Sharing What a fantastic concept for an anthology A book that highlights a diverse group of intelligent young heroines is sure to be a hit among youngsters and adults The stories contained within Brave New Girls Tales of Girls and Gadgets are as varied as the contributing authors are All are unique and all include positive, scientifically inclined role models I especially love the fact that all of the proceeds go to a great cause a scholarship fund through the Society of Women Engineers Sharing the idea that girls can excel in male dominated fields and have the ability to become scientists, inventors, space explorers, programmers, etc just as boys do is an admirable basis for a book geared towards teens of either sex I would recommend this book for teens and lovers of YA SciFi Brilliantly empowering received a complimentary copy of this book from one of the authors in exchange for an honest review

    I really appreciate the motivation of the anthology Each of the stories includes a short author bio, and thoughts on the theme, and a few of them really resonated with me It would be nice to get to a world where being a woman in STEM does not make you stand out as if you were a unicorn This would be a great read for a young girl, as it has strong female role models, as well as plenty of action There are some really good stories I enjoyed particularly Helen of Mars , A Little Bit Truer , I really appreciate the motivation of the anthology Each of the stories includes a short author bio, and thoughts on the theme, and a few of them really resonated with me It would be nice to get to a world where being a woman in STEM does not make you stand out as if you were a unicorn This would be a great read for a young girl, as it has strong female role models, as well as plenty of action There are some really good stories I enjoyed particularly Helen of Mars , A Little Bit Truer , The Key to the Stars , The Mad Scientist s Daughter and Courage Is A Little Bit Truer really stood up for me, with its core theme of choice set in a very well constructed world Too many of the stories for my taste rely heavily on the hacker girl against evil institutions I guess I would have liked to seeconstructive roles for girls with a knack for computers how about programming ground breaking technology that makes people s lives better Revenues from sales of the book are donated to the Society of Women Engineers scholarship fund, so this book actively supports the cause it champions

    This is a charity anthology in aid of gettinggirls into STEM, which is something I wholeheartedly support Like any anthology, it resembles Forrest Gump s box of chocolates, and some stories aresuccessful than others, but overall I recommend it.I read a pre publication copy which I received via NetGalley in expectation of an honest review Given that this is presumably still to have another editing round, it s remarkably clean, apart from occasional missing words in some stories o This is a charity anthology in aid of gettinggirls into STEM, which is something I wholeheartedly support Like any anthology, it resembles Forrest Gump s box of chocolates, and some stories aresuccessful than others, but overall I recommend it.I read a pre publication copy which I received via NetGalley in expectation of an honest review Given that this is presumably still to have another editing round, it s remarkably clean, apart from occasional missing words in some stories one of the hardest things for an editor to pick up In particular, I spotted very few homonym errors, which are usually the bane of collections like this There were a couple, but I noted that discreet was spelled correctly in the several places it was used, and getting that one wrong is very common.Unfortunately, given the target audience of science savvy young people, there are a few conspicuous science fails in some stories Particularly noticeable to me were the solar powered vehicle that was capable of reaching orbit, and the Mars rover which could be controlled with no speed of light lag There are also a few examples of technobabble and technological handwaving which wouldn t fool an informed reader Still, as fiction, with few exceptions the stories worked well for me I was worried when the first two both featured adults ex machina who appeared at the end and rescued the protagonist from an impossible situation, but after those opening stories, most of the protagonists solved their own problems using intelligence and persistence occasionally with a generous helping of luck, but not too often The YA cliches were at an acceptably low level, too I don t think there was a single love triangle There was one story in which a protagonist who was of Asian and Indian descent had green eyes, as is traditional for YA protagonists for some reason, but otherwise that ridiculous cliche didn t appear The same story featured a large, undigested expository lump at the start, a fault most of the other stories avoided, though they did occasionally tell where showing would have worked better.Overall, though, these are competent authors writing compelling stories of intelligent and resourceful young women solving difficult human problems with science and engineering Anything which putsof that into the world gets my support
