Girl Books That Rock
A new heroine to adore. The latest Kiki Strike book debuts next month and it looks h.o.t. in all its kid glory. Kiki heads up a band of 5 girl misfits who battle in the secret city below Manhattan.
The best part? The talents of these 12-year-old rockstars include chemistry, lock picking (we so need to learn) & mechanical engineering. They could kick Mary Jane Watson's arm-flailing, lounge-singing ass any day of the week (I mean, seriously, Kirsten - get it together, girl!).
We also heart the series' author, Kirsten (Miller, not Dunst). She invented the story of a girl mastermind while working in advertising, and now she sips coffee and writes books about smart chicks to inspire young girls. Sigh...
