Whether they're young or old, household names or behind-the-scenes players, so many women have incredible stories to tell. And now is their chance.

Edited by bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz, Because I Was a Girl is a collection of anecdotes from girls and women, ages 10 to 88, about the barriers they've faced—and the dreams they've made come true. Featuring a who's who of successful women in the arts, finance, politics, and more, this book is a must-have gift for girls and young women everywhere. It's perfect for fans of Rad American Women A-Z and includes more than thirty stories by luminaries like Dolores Huerta, Libba Bray, chef Katie Button, Quvenzhané Wallis, and many more.
