"… the task of the adolescent girl is to find and remain true to her inner self—to avoid being co-opted by societal and peer expectations into assuming a false identity" (Sprague and Keeling18).
“These girls are not waiting to be rescued; they are doing the rescuing. Nor are they waiting for a male to provide a happy ending: They are fashioning their own stories.' (p. 4)"-- Odean, Great Books for Girls
Book includes extensive SciFi/Fantasy recommendations for girls
