A TYRANNY OF PETTICOATS: 15 Stories of Belles, Bank Robbers, and Other Badass Girls

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.

With stories by:
J. Anderson Coats
Andrea Cremer
Y. S. Lee
Katherine Longshore
Marie Lu
Kekla Magoon
Marissa Meyer
Saundra Mitchell
Beth Revis
Caroline Richmond

    Hey Marissa! You are my favorite author and I have been looking for someway to contact you! I don’t have twitter or facebook and I couldn’t and can’t make it to any of your signings. I was wondering if you could possibly send me a bookplate?? That would mean SO much to me!

  7. Liliana commented on:

    Sounds cool! 😀

  8. Mark Murata commented on:

    Looking forward to seeing you either in the U District store coming up, or in the Bellevue University Bookstore in March.

  9. Jess commented on:

    Do these book events cost money to go to? Or are they free?

  10. Natalie commented on:

    Ms Meyer, the CALENDAR section on your webpage says the venue is the Seattle University Bookstore instead of the Bellevue location. I hope your many fans (like me) won’t go to the wrong location.

    I’m excited for this launch party and I can’t wait to devour your new book! : )
