Gr 4â7âThis sequel to Girls Who Rocked the World includes profiles of 45 girls and women who have made a difference in their local and global communities. Figures include Josephine Baker, Cleopatra, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jazz Jennings, Nadia Nadim, and Selena Quintanilla-PÃ©rez. Each informative profile is fairly brief and written in a straightforward conversational style. The author adds bits of storytelling flair to the biographical accounts: "Aretha stepped up to the chair. From this height, she could see the whole congregation at New Bethel Baptist Church." This technique helps move narratives forward without being distracting. Peppered throughout are quotes from contemporary girls that answer the question "How will YOU rock the world?"âproviding readers with an opportunity to imagine themselves included among these inspiring women.Copyright 2017 School Library Journal.
