Like Other Girls

By Claire Feuille

Like Other Girls by Claire Feuille.jpg
Have you ever noticed how all female leads in historical fiction are... kind of the same person?

Like Other Girls is the sensible roast of musical theatre's finest historical women that you've been waiting for. "I'm not like the other girls. I'm well-read and independent and I don't want to get married." We're covering that trope. "I'm trapped by [insert patriarchal figure here] but I just want to see the world." That one too. "I hate this man and we bicker, but eventually I will fall in love with him because he is my intellectual equal." Yep!

 

Funny, smart, and touching, Like Other Girls might just make you love these characters as much as we do.
