Editorial Reviews

“Read it cover to cover, and then make sure you share it with all the young girl geeks you know.”

– Brit + Co

“Through and through, Maggs manages to talk about feminism, fangirling, cons, lingo, and the general idea that you should be yourself, and do that unapologetically, with a great deal of lightheartedness and fun.”

– The Frisky

“If you or someone else in your life could do with an inclusive, funny, super smart, and sweet introduction to the world of female geeks, look no further.”

– The Mary Sue
