Six Angry Girls
Girls get it done! Raina and Millie are seniors at Steelton High. Raina, an amazing drama student, is happily attached to her long-time boyfriend, Brandon. Millie is planning to make it to state with her mock trial team this year, and she has dreams of becoming a lawyer like her hero, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
When Brandon suddenly dumps Raina, she quits drama on a whim and writes to an advice columnist, who suggests Raina take up knitting to get over her heartbreak. When Millie gets dumped, too, but from her now all boys’ mock trial team, Raina tells Millie to start a girls’ team instead. Raina and Millie join forces to bring together a diverse group of girls for a new and improved mock trial team. These six girls don’t just go up against the boys’ team, but against misogyny and toxic masculinity, too. With the help of their local yarn store, they take their activism beyond the mock court, one stitch at a time.
Six Angry Girls by Adrienne Kisner is a hilarious and hard-to-put-down story about girls fighting for inclusivity using the strong feminist tradition of knitting protests. Kisner has created some smart, defiant, and very real female characters—girls you’d want to bring with you to a courthouse yarn bombing.
