What if the princess didn't marry Prince Charming but instead went on to be an astronaut? What if the jealous step sisters were supportive and kind? And what if the queen was the one really in charge of the kingdom? Illustrated by sixty female artists from every corner of the globe, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls introduces us to one hundred remarkable women and their extraordinary lives, from Ada Lovelace to Malala, Amelia Earhart to Michelle Obama. Empowering, moving and inspirational, these are true fairy tales for heroines who definitely don't need rescuing.
Naomi Alderman's The Power was named Fiction Book of the Year, following on from winning this year's Bailey's Prize in June. Published by Viking, an imprint of Penguin General, The Power places the reader in a dystopian future where teenage girls find that, with a flick of their fingers, they can inflict agonising pain, and even death - seeing the lives of its four protagonists transformed. Speaking of The Power, Simon from the Foyles marketing team said: "What if all women developed the power to electrocute people at will? In The Power Naomi Alderman answers this intriguing question in spectacular style, weaving an utterly absorbing narrative around the lives of characters around the world as they bear witness to society's violent transformation. If you like your page-turners whip-smart and ferociously current, this is the book for you."
