Rachel Friedman has always been the consummate good girl who does well in school and plays it safe, so the college grad surprises no one more than herself when, on a whim (and in an effort to escape impending life decisions), she buys a ticket to Ireland, a place she has never visited. There she forms an unlikely bond with a free-spirited Australian girl, a born adventurer who spurs Rachel on to a yearlong odyssey that takes her to three continents, fills her life with newfound friends, and gives birth to a previously unrealized passion for adventure. As her journey takes her to Australia and South America, Rachel discovers and embraces her love of travel and unlocks more truths about herself than she ever realized she was seeking. Along the way, the erstwhile good girl finally learns to do something she’s never done before: simply live for the moment. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Who's the Little Girl with the Big Voice? Standing 4 feet, 2 inches tall in designer flats (which she would never be caught dead in anyway, 3-4" heels are a must), Lauren Ruotolo has spent her 33-ish years seeing the world from a unique angle—upward facing. She is not a dwarf, and she is not a paraplegic. Ruotolo was born with McCune-Albright Syndrome, a mysterious and rare genetic disease that researchers say occurs in anywhere between 1 in 100,000 and 1 in 1 million people. Some people with the condition have short legs due to deformities (Lauren does); and some experience early puberty and accelerated development (Lauren literally started developing at 9 months old, and went into menopause as a pre-teen); and bones can be easily broken and bruised (count her in), and therefore, they tend to go the wheelchair route. That was never going to be a road Lauren wanted to travel. And so far, so good! Her preferred method of transportation, instead, include stiletto heels, and she utilizes them to do everything from hailing cabs in mid-town Manhattan and driving her white Audi convertible back to her childhood home and hairdresser parents on Long Island, to traipsing along the streets of exotic, ancient places like Greece and Turkey. But how does a girl who was originally predicted to live a wheel-chair bound existence become so adventurous, self-assured, successful, and . . . unflappable? Instead of being hovered over by enabling parents, she was sent off to sleep away camp (and became a counselor later on). Instead of trailing behind the other kids in grade school in a game of freeze tag, she orchestrated it. Instead of following in the footsteps of her two stunning younger sisters, she became the role model big sister to them (and landed a hot boyfriend, to boot!) Today she is the Director of Entertainment Promotions for Hearst Magazines. Lauren Ruotolo avoided the label of handicapped through uniquely discovering who she really is and thus avoiding playing the label game. The little girl, with the big voice, Ruotolo is a combination of roaring personality, great mind, and humble soul, with a heart bigger than any shoe closet of Carrie Bradshaw. Part of that heart fills this book, as Ruotolo offers the entertaining evolution of a little girl in a big world to living tall in a small one, with advice and encouragement for any woman of any age who is still finding her way.

"If Hidden Figures has you itching to learn more about the women who worked in the space program, pick up Nathalia Holt's lively, immensely readable history, Rise of the Rocket Girls." --Entertainment Weekly The riveting true story of the women who launched America into space. In the 1940s and 50s, when the newly minted Jet Propulsion Laboratory needed quick-thinking mathematicians to calculate velocities and plot trajectories, they didn't turn to male graduates. Rather, they recruited an elite group of young women who, with only pencil, paper, and mathematical prowess, transformed rocket design, helped bring about the first American satellites, and made the exploration of the solar system possible. For the first time, Rise of the Rocket Girls tells the stories of these women--known as "human computers"--who broke the boundaries of both gender and science. Based on extensive research and interviews with all the living members of the team, Rise of the Rocket Girls offers a unique perspective on the role of women in science: both where we've been, and the far reaches of space to which we're heading.
