Publisher Comments:

Are you a girl whoand#8217;s tired of waiting for someone to design the perfect skirt? Bored by what adults think makes great "teen literature"? Insulted by the onslaught of fluffy spring break movies? Goodand#8212;then youand#8217;re on the right track. The next step is to take matters into your own hands. A fun and comprehensive guide for young women,Indie Girlcontains all of the information youand#8217;ll need to start independent creative ventures, like dance companies, rock bands, art galleries, fashion companies, and more. Inside youand#8217;ll find out how to shoot a new TV show, cast and produce a play, pull together a poetry slam, make your own zine, and even build a float for a parade. Youand#8217;ll also read quotes from teen and professional artists, receive technical and creative advice from pros, and get a better understanding of why and how women should be working together in the arts.

Indie Girlshows you that when girls get come together to be creative, thereand#8217;s virtually nothing they canand#8217;t do!

Review:

"'You know the planet is in trouble. The question is: What can you do about it?' challenges this small-format guidebook, third in a series. Divided into categories revolving around habits at home, school, in the community, or on the road, it offers such suggestions as shopping at vintage or secondhand stores, eating less meat, donating old cellphones, and carpooling. Each green venture is followed by concrete ideas (one way to 'Be a Green Guest' is to 'say ‘no' to hotel shampoos') that encourage direct action. Cheerful cartoon spot art underscores the positive tone, while end pages include a glossary and comprehensive list of additional resources. Ages 12 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
