Are you sitting comfortably? Maybe you shouldn’t be. For this book of fairy tales challenges every stereotype of young girls as little princesses dressed in pink. Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls is a book meant to inspire and empower, with profiles of a hundred extraordinary women across history from Cleopatra to Malala. The authors were told they’d never get the book off the ground, but managed to launch one of the most successful literary crowdfunding appeals ever.
