Summary, etc.: Crisscross America--on dogsleds and ships, stagecoaches and trains--from pirate ships off the coast of the Carolinas to the peace, love, and protests of 1960s Chicago. Join fifteen of the most talented writers working in young adult literature today--an impressive sisterhood that includes Elizabeth Wein, Marie Lu, Marissa Meyer, and Kekla Magoon--on a thrill ride through history with American girls driving their own stories. They are monsters and mediums, bankrobbers and barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They're charting their own path in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in their arsenal, facing down muderers and marriage proposals. Along the way, they might kiss girls or boys--or no one at all, because they're too busy catching spies. But one thing's for sure--they're going to have a hell of story to tell.
