This book is made up 15 short stories that are inspired by events and people throughout history. Some of the stories were more exciting than the others, but there was a few good ones among them. Still a good read for those who like historical fiction.

From Alaskan barkeeps facing down a criminal mastermind, to a bank robber who dreams of being a Bonnie without a Clyde, the women of A Tyranny of Petticoats are the heroes of their own stories. Stories by Y.S. Lee, Kekla Magoon, Beth Revis, Marie Lu, and others shine a light on some of the lesser-known eras of the American past, and they do so by placing teen girls in the heart of the action. This wonderful collection will appeal to readers of all ages and packs a truly girl-powered punch.
