... a Feminist book

The Grace Year by Kim Liggett

“The Grace Year” by Kim Liggett. When they turned 16, all girls must go to the forest outside of their town on there own. It is a rite of passage to get rid of their magic and to be ready to be a wife. Nobdy in the town talk about what happends in the wood. It is a great dystopia about sorority.”

... Non-Fiction book

"Motherhood" by Sheila Heti

“Motherhood” by Sheila Heti It is not about feminism but the decision to have a child. I personally do not want one. It is wonderful to have a book which speak about this topic freely.

... Graphic Novel

My favourite thing is monsters by Emil Ferris

My favourite thing is monsters by Emil Ferris. This novel tells the story of a young girl who does not feel like everybody. Her neighbour died and she is going to start investigate to discover what happened to her. Emil Ferris was paralysed when she couldn’t draw anymore. What is brilliant is that everything is drawn with a ball pen.
