Summer is the perfect time for reading, so why not pick up this great new book She’s Shameless: Women write about growing up, rocking out and fighting back edited by Megan Griffith-Greene and Stacey May Fowles.

Check out the amazon.ca description:

Co-editors Megan Griffith-Greene and Stacey May Fowles have compiled an anthology of fearless and funny non-fiction about strong, smart and shameless young women. With wit and honesty, the writers share stories of their teen experiences (both positive and negative) on everything from pop culture to high school principals.The book is founded on Shameless magazine’s tradition of smart, sassy, honest and inclusive writing, and reaches out to young female readers who are often ignored by mainstream: freethinkers, queer youth, young women of colour, punk rockers, feminists, intellectuals, artists, and activists.

Also, be sure to check out the Shameless Magazine Blog for great resources on strong young women. You can also get Shameless Magazine in print– a fantastic alternative to typical girl’s magazines.
