On Her Way

Stories and Poems About Growing Up Girl
An anthology of stories edited by

Growing up has never been easy, but the girls in this inspiring collection of twenty-one stories and poems for 'tweens tackle it with gusto. Edwidge Danticat exhorts girls to "come to this party" even if they're not invited; Donna Jo Napoli captures the mixture of pride and insecurity in trying to assert independence; Sheila Solomon Klass shares the story of how Annie Oakley learns to shoot a gun despite her mother's disapproval; and Linda Sue Park writes about one girl's struggle in art class as she wavers between wanting acceptance and wanting to express herself. This remarkable, diverse anthology celebrates the energy, imagination, inventiveness, compassion, and strength of young American women.
