Got a Girl Crush On: The protagonists of sci-fi children’s novel Wollstonecraft
Their mystery-solving adventures may be a figment of author Jordan Stratford’s imagination, but the ladies who inspired their characters are all too real: Ada Byron, widely considered to be the world’s first computer programer, and noted English novelist Mary Shelley. Stratford describes his work as a “pro-math, pro-science, pro-history and pro-literature adventure novel for and about girls.” He also says he wants his nine-year-old daughter to grow up to “be a mad scientist and take over the world.” We approve on both counts.
Editions of the book can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter.
