“Girls need to see that it’s possible to be a heroine and face the monsters, even if you are a normal girl with all the weaknesses and fears—yes, even if you are a lost girl. You can combat the monsters. No need to wait for James Bond to come to your rescue. Michaud has even dedicated the book to the girls: “for every girl who ever faced the monster living under the bed, the creature hiding in the closet or the fiend living within.” In many ways I feel this book is a warm salute to girls.”
