The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy is the ultimate handbook for ladies living the nerdy life, a fun and feminist take on the often male-dominated world of geekdom. With delightful illustrations and an unabashed love for all the in(ternet)s and outs of geek culture, this book is packed with tips, playthroughs, and cheat codes, including how to make nerdy friends, rock awesome cosplay, write fanfic with feels, defeat Internet trolls, and attend your first con.

Wonder Women - alternate title: Women: 25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers who Changed History....Smart women have always been able to achieve amazing things, even when the odds were stacked against them. The stories of the brilliant, brainy, and totally rad women in history who broke barriers as scientists, engineers, mathematicians, adventurers, and inventors. Plus, interviews with real-life women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers, an extensive bibliography, and a guide to women-centric science and technology organizations - -all to show the many ways the geeky girls of today can help to build the future.
