Rejected Princesses: Tales of History's Boldest Heroines, Hellions, and Heretics by Jason Porath
This is a collection of non-fiction stories about women throughout history. And it is absolutely amazing.
This book is essentially a picture book for intersectional feminist adults, and I loved it. Porath covers a variety of different women from a variety of different places. Every subject of each story has their own picture created by the author himself who used to be an animator for Dreamworks.
Between the pure awesomeness of the project itself, the artwork, and the narration of each story, this book was a fun, informative, and easy read.
The author also wasn't afraid to pull any punches or insist that he knew everything. He was more than willing to admit the people he was writing about weren't always perfect and that history isn't always definitive.
The point is, Rejected Princesses is awesome and everyone should read it. And also buy it.
