Booklist's Quick Tips, "Unpacking a Standard: With Series Nonfiction" - Julie Green

"Girls Rebel! is a compilation of important figures who have helped to change the way the world sees and treats women. After students have read through the book, ask them to use the arguments in the text as evidence to create a possible rubric that the author may have used to determine which women should be included in the book. Using that same rubric, have students identify who they think the author may think is the biggest “rebel,” using quotes from the text as support." - Booklist's Quick Tips, "Unpacking a Standard: With Series Nonfiction"

Reading Today Online - Barbara A. Ward, Washington State University Pullman

"Brief vignettes with photographs alongside them describe the feats of many women through the ages who looked at the way the world operates and decided to take action. . . .A good place for young feminists to start reading about others who paved the way for them, the book carefully avoids featuring only women from the United States." - Reading Today Online

Booklist - Ilene Cooper

"The title and subtitle are dramatic, but this features well-known women, many of whom have appeared in stand-alone biographies. Still, having all these trailblazers, especially contemporary women, in one volume is a good idea. . . .this is useful as a starting point to further research." - Booklist

Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

"An eclectic and ethnically diverse mix of history-changing women from the nineteenth century to today — opera singer Maria Callas to rap group Salt-N-Pepa; Iranian activist Shirin Ebadi to astronaut Sally Ride — fill the pages in this girl-empowering series. Using a jam-packed magazine format, the accessible texts are informative; sporadic first-person narratives lend a more intimate vibe." - Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

Library Media Connection - Honor Zalewski, Librarian, Cumberland County Public Schools, Cumberland, Virgini

"Middle school students will flock to this eye-catching set on important women in history. Some of the women have overcome color and gender barriers as well as physical challenges. Although these books do not contain a lot of details, students can easily use them as a starting point for research or for reading pleasure." - Library Media Connection

School Library Journal - Rita Meade, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

"These books are eye-catching, engaging, and chock-full of information. With snapshot profiles of numerous inspiring and accomplished women in the fields of sports, politics, music, etc., there’s a lot offered in terms of diversity of subjects." - School Library Journal
