It’s only ONE WEEK until my new book THE NOWHERE GIRLS is out, and I’m celebrating by sharing THIS PLAYLIST of songs by kick-ass girl musicians that inspired me as a teen. The voices of these women helped shape me and helped me shape the brave girls in the book (especially Rosina, who I can’t wait for you to meet).
I hope you enjoy! It makes a great soundtrack for both jogging and smashing the patriarchy 😉
