This week I’m over at the Skiffy and Fanty Show with a review of Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman. This is a powerful young adult novel that deals with some serious issues and wears its feminist heart on its sleeve.

The Skiffy and Fanty Show has resumed its regular schedule. Head on over to check out my review of Markswoman by Rati Mehrotra, a novel about orders of female warriors, psychic daggers and quests for revenge.
