I know that ARC's are made in advance so there could be mistakes so I didn't take any points off for that, but it was hard to read at times because the text was all over the place. Lastly, the stories at times were really short. Some of the stories were so short I barely got any details. Pros: (end with the good...) This book was a super short fun read! It was so empowering to read about young girls doing truly amazing things. The end of the book was interesting as well because you got to also add in your own story. It was executed in a way that kept me reading.

    This is a simple story collection of historic young women who have made a difference in the world many of whom are quite contemporary. Would have liked to have seen surfer Bethany Meilani Hamilton-Dirks, writer Angie Thomas, or even a footnote mentioning the female students from Stoneman Douglas High School among others but still a great book for teens.

    Rad Girls Can is one of my favorite reads of the year, full of interesting and inspiring content on young women past and present who have achieved remarkable things despite the obstacles.

I especially appreciated the breadth of the collection, especially the diversity of the girls featured. They are diverse in race, religion, and culture, as well as from various time periods, achieving goals in so many different areas of the world. Chess champions, record setting athletes, political activists, writers and performers, fashion designers, online personalities, artists, musicians--the book is just overflowing with wonderful young women. And while not all the stories, especially the historic ones, end well, they still inspire. All of them. In the dark sea that is politics and reality right now, this book shines as a beacon of hope and a reminder of what can be achieved when young women are given the chance and/or when they have the determination to succeed. It also gives hope in what our future can be, with young women like this growing up to take over the world. The sooner the better, ladies! We need you! So buy this for every young woman in your life. Read it yourself. Follow up on the stories and read more about these inspiring women. And maybe even do like I did, and follow the contemporary girls featured in this book via social media. We could all use to see more girl power and inspiring achievement in our lives.

    This is a very inspiring collection of data. I wouldn't call it a book, it's not even a collection really. More like a journal of various achievements by different women. It's something you want to shelf somewhere nearby for a rainy day. Their stories are written in a Wikipedia style more or less. Facts and data kept unchanged, I think. Which makes it so much more powerful and heartbreaking, also really uplifting when you think you're having it hard.

This book is ultimately a really good source of research about female success stories that come from unwelcome and harsh backgrounds. The only problem that I think some people might have is that these stories are rather short and general - when you really associate with one of them, you'll want to do a more thorough research to read about all their emotions and thoughts while going through these accomplishments. It's never as simple as a four-page story. But it's a damn good start. This book would make a fantastic present for a girl who loves art, sports, crafts etc. and isn't sure she has got what it takes to make a life out of it! Thank you NetGalley for the chance to read this.

This book came into my life at just the right time.  It filled me, even as old as I am, with the hope that this new generation of girls will carry on what my grandmother and mother started by getting the right to vote, equality and safe health care. The stories are all about girls, even young people under ten, that overcame things like race, creed, and religion to do make a wrong right.  Of course, Malala is represented along with some others that I had never heard about like two Polish sisters under 16 who saved 13 children during World War II, and Marley Dias who just wanted to read one thousand books.  I had heard of Marley because of her love of reading since that struck a chord with me.  The book really covers all areas like sports, education, immigration, gun control, and science. To quote the Kimmie Schmidt Unbreakable theme song: Unbreakable! They alive, dammit! It's a miracle Unbreakable! They alive, dammit! Females are strong as hell

    *4.5 Stars* I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This was very enjoyable and the stories about the girls were captivating. The only reason why it didn’t get 5 Stars is because the stories could have been a bit more in depth. Still, I liked that the stories weren’t too long, it helped keeping me focused. I think everyone should read this but especially younger people, not just girls but boys too. Girls need more representation and models and this was perfect for it.

We are treated to 50 (49 really, but the last one is special) introductions to some seriously amazing girls along with the stunning papercut artwork by Miriam Klein Stahl. These entries cover a wide range of talented girls including names you are sure to recognize (Anne Frank, Misty Copeland, etc.) and those you may not know but certainly deserve more attention (Memory Banda, The Podgorski Sisters). The best part is that it is a book geared towards younger readers, which means it’s easy to understand and focuses on showing that even the smallest person can make a big difference if they set their minds to it. The book is very inclusive as well, which is amazing! The girls included are from all walks of life, showing a wide range of social class, races, cultures, and religions. Their interests are varied as well and there is truly something in here for everyone. It even has a wonderful little section on gender in the introduction. And if you hit the end and decide you need more stories, then there is another section with fifty more smaller bios for further reading and research. The artwork is bold and stunning and makes this the perfect book to keep on a shelf or table to return to later. If you are looking for a book for a young person in your life to help them feel confident or maybe help them find role models that they can relate to then this is a perfect purchase!

The selection of women is from around the world, though America and the Western world have the most representation and all have overcome challenges or hardships to change the world. With a resource list and suggestions on how to make a difference, "Rad Girls Can" is an engaging, readable trip through time that shines a light on females who lit the way and their contemporary successors, and is a source of inspiration for today's young girls, and women.

Among these girls, I already knew about Anne Frank, Lorde, or Joan of Arc! For the others, I discovered them all thanks to this book and I really enjoyed their stories. In particular the story of Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein. Everyone knows this novel but for me it stopped there, I didn’t know much about it. I admit that I sincerely thought that his author was a mature woman, and not at all! Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein when she was only 18 years old! Personally, I want to write a book since my childhood, so now I tell myself that I will really have to achieve this goal once and for all! All these young girls make you want to give everything for what you love and what you want to accomplish, now I want to do more with my life! I also really liked the illustrations, the portraits drawn in black and white, with bright colors in the background, a perfect mix for a really nice book to discover. I can only advise this amazing book if you are interested in these kind of inspirational stories. It is intended for a public of 10 +. I learned a lot while reading it and I am delighted. // To resume : This book was inspiring. But also informative, I discovered such many strong girls. It made me want to do more with my life ! - Un livre qui inspire mais qui m’a aussi permis de découvrir des jeunes filles fortes. Des récits qui donnent envie de se bouger et faire plus de sa vie !

Each entry is well researched and written extremely well. Klein's illustrations were simple rendered and is reminiscent of cut-paper portraits, which was done rather well. Diversity is the strength of this anthology. It collects women from past and present, from all over the world and from different levels socioeconomically. From Misty Copeland, an American ballet dancer to Phiona Mutesi, a Ugandan chess player, each entry is carefully researched and powerfully displayed. All in all, Rad Girls Can: Stories of Bold, Brave, and Brilliant Young Women is a wonderfully written book and a magnificent collection of mini-biographies of diverse women from all around the world and from different time periods. It is a good read and reference book for anyone who wants to learn more about women in history.

Rad Girls Can is an inspirational book about inspirational women who wanted to make a difference. Opinion: I had a lot of fun reading Rad Girls Can. I learned about young women who have done so much for their world and they don't get their much-deserved appreciation. I felt the authors of Rad Girls Can did an amazing job with how they wrote, formatted, and illustrated the book. I could not put it down! One thing I would like to point out is that it does have some stories about transgender, and at the very beginning they shared a "Note on Gender" that talks about gender identity and other things related to that. This book is a great coming-of-age story that many girls (and boys) will love. Reviewed by a LitPick student book reviewer, Age 13

    3.5 stars. This collection of short biographies is a solid introduction to a wide variety of young girls who have impacted the world. Many of the selected girls are currently still young, and most of them are still alive, although there are a few pulled from the depths of history. The selected girls are pretty diverse in background and achievement, which makes for an interesting mix to read.

The encouraging style and format is the kind that makes you want to get out there and do something. One of the stories did get into some weird ableist language about perseverance etc, but there were four disabled girls featured, and the problem wasn't a theme. The slur for Roma folks is used at one point, which was a bit cringey. I wish more climate/environmental/water activists had been featured, particularly in one of the prominent positions and not just one of the single paragraphs at the back. Overall, a good read, suitable for YA and MG readers eager to learn about the girls who have impacted the world from a young age, especially those reading with a mind towards action.

    Rad Girls Can is work of nonfiction, bringing together stories of amazing girls that accomplished so much - below the age of 20! I love that in the beginning it includes a preface about gender: mentioning some transgender women featured, and honoring the stories of the super rad boys out there! I could imagine these stories sparking conversations among students in grades 3 and up. I love this book because it's such a cool way to look at past women that are changing the future!

    Awesome gift for young girls (all children really)! It's a fabulous collection, covering Rad Girls from the 15th century to the 21st century. Girls from different sports, science, writers and advocates of the rights of the citizens. Also, as the title suggests, they're 'girls'; hence, young in age. The youngest rad girl is a 5 year old. Last but not the least, I love the illustrations and the overall designing of the book. Awesome gift for young girls (all children really)!

    I was thrilled to get a copy of this book at the San Diego comic book convention. Recently there have been a lot of books celebrating the accomplishments of women around the world. The difference with this book is that the author tried to incorporate feelings known about the subjects. It wasn’t just biographical facts. I hope many young women are able to read this book.

    This is a very inspiring non-fiction collection of stories that feature young women making & changing their place in the world! The stories range from athletes, artists, performers, academics, scientists, adventurers, and much more! I love the pop art style of the illustrations and the short, to-the-point writing format.

    It’s essentially a profile book for teenagers and girls. There’s some great substance in here—it showcases girls who have excelled in a variety of cool things. Inventions, sports, history—each thing is reflected and it is honestly an inspiring book. I gifted it to a friend’s 13 year old daughter and I only hope she finds it as inspiring as I did.

    Good read, short but lots of information. A nice mix of more and less well known ladies. I like their summaries of other women they wanted to include in the back, and that they do have a research and resources page, though I really wish it had a bibliography. (And better art, I really don't like the art style.) Good read, short but lots of information. A nice mix of more and less well known ladies.

    A great read with my 9 yo daughter, we’d read each story, discuss the differences made in the world due to their “rad ness” and then look up each heroine on the internet. It was a great way to start a discussion with my daughter and introduce her to a myriad of badass accomplishments by both girls and women alike! Definitely recommend!
