Staff Reviews

Brazen is full of fresh takes on stories of strong, inspiring women. To my delight, I got to learn about some women I was already familiar with and some I'd never heard of before. With representation from different geographic regions, professions, accomplishments, and time periods, the diversity of stories is what impressed me most. An approachable text format, succinct and informative narratives, feisty humor, and playful illustrations make for a smooth, enjoyable read. -Sage
