Crisscross America — on dogsleds and ships, stagecoaches and trains — from pirate ships off the coast of the Carolinas to the peace, love, and protests of 1960s Chicago. Join fifteen of today’s most talented writers of young adult literature on a thrill ride through history with American girls charting their own course. They are monsters and mediums, bodyguards and barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They're making their own way in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in their arsenals, facing down murderers and marriage proposals. And they all have a story to tell.

For any kind of book lover.
This book is just as good as it advertises. It is VERY suspenseful for a couple of stories. Some are heartbreaking. Some are thought provoking. Some are just pure sass. I highly recommend this book to ANY kind of genre reader. This has fantasy (goblins, vampires, ghosts) and realistic fiction stories that blend through so well. After every section you will say, "That HAS to be the best story in here." No. It just gets better. If you are into history, you learn a lot about those settings in the authors note (though not in a boring textbooky way.) Some of the characters have such sassy comebacks that I often found myself on the ground. Please read this. Or at least try it because EVERYBODY will find at least one story that suits them. Thanks for reading this long review!😉
