Girl Adventurers

13 Feb
I love me some girl adventurers! Middle Grade books can sometimes seem filled with boys fighting swashbuckling pirates and saving the world from evil sorcerers, so I absolutely love coming across a female character with moxie. That’s probably why my first book, Zip, is about an eleven-year-old girl who travels across the country with only her trusty scooter and a bag of homemade granola bars to keep her company. 
I knew I wasn’t alone in this, so I decided to ask some debut Middle Grade writers what they thought about female character–both in their own books and in those that inspired them to write in the first place. So begins a new little blog series about female adventurers. I hope you’ll stick around and see what these fabulous writers have to say!
