I think Lucy Van Pelt may be my spirit animal. Only with a much shorter temper.
Being of an age where I missed the Peanuts bandwagon, I never realised that Lucy was more than just a crabby, bossy girl. Turns out she's a long-time feminist. Which is why I found How to be a Grrrl kind of nice.
With seven short illustrative chapters, it outlines seven clear instructions on how to be a girl, Lucy style.
The messages are strong, with chapters like "fight for what you believe in," but I found the book to be a little skinny. It's probably the point – cartoons are inherently short, sharp and without further explanation – but even a foreword would have added a lot. A nice (albeit quick) read.
