This is another great title in the Girls in Science series. But here's the cool thing: you don't have to be a girl to read it. Sure, it focuses on three women who conduct weather science, and yes, there are lots of short biographies of even more women in meteorology... But the first two chapters introduce the science of meteorology and why it is important.
Reviews for other books in the series: Astronomy: Cool Women in Space
•CLEAR Reviews/Goodreads "Part history of astronomy, part biography of three notable women in science, this book offers an informative read for young women interested in astronomy either as a career or for recreation. The biographies cover Nancy Grace Roman, Maggie Aderin-Pocock and Andrea Ghez and encourages young women to follow in their footsteps with interesting facts, links and pictures. I would definitely call this a pep-rally for women in the sciences."

Reviews for other books in the series: Technology: Cool Women Who Code
• School Library Connection - "A treasure trove of discovery, this interactive series promises to influence the next generation of female science stars. Glossary. Timeline. Index. Highly Recommended."
• NSTA RECOMMENDS - ". . . The manageable–sized chapters and sections within each chapter make it a great way to foster conversation in reading groups and check for understanding. Looking at the advances in technology and the contributions of women fills a hole in many classroom and school libraries searching for more nonfiction describing contributions of women and minorities to STEM. The book is aimed at the ‘tween’ reader (ages 9–12) when many students lose interest in reading because books often become dull with information being presented in textbook style. This book is anything but dull and definitely not ‘textbooky’. . . "
