Grade 7 Up—This volume is packed with ideas and suggestions for living green. Chapters describe the work of beauty entrepreneurs, animal-rights advocates, educators, artists, grocers, scientists, and engineers. Women and girls of various backgrounds share their stories of how they are making the world a better place, whether through recycling, creating usable lunch bags, writing blogs, or cleaning up beaches. Scattered throughout the book are vignettes or statements by celebrities such as Hayden Panettiere, Ellen Page, and Jessica Lowndes. Bright colors and copious photographs highlight the lively layout. The book concludes with suggestions for things readers can do to make the environment greener.—Patricia Ann Owens, Illinois Eastern Community Colleges
