From Library Journal
Grade 7 Up-In the first section, the authors profile 25 young women between the ages of 14 and 24 who have demonstrated considerable mental and physical courage in pursuit of personal challenges. Their adventures range from physically daring, including skydiving and mountain climbing, to those that include public service, such as home building for Habitat for Humanity. Each 6-to-10 page profile offers a personal narrative, brief biographical information, and two black-and-white photographs. A short annotated list of germane titles, Web sites, and organizations follows each profile and serves as a useful springboard for readers who might want to find more information on a specific activity. Part two, "How to Be Gutsy Yourself," offers information on getting one's mind and body in shape. Each of these two sections includes "Take Action" suggestions and is also followed by an annotated bibliography of books, organizations, and Web sites. The book concludes with a lengthy list of women and girls who have made history. A successful presentation of motivational material.
