Discover the story of a woman who dared to dive, defy, and inspire. This is Shark Lady. In "The Girl Who Can," the irrepressible Ama Ata Aidoo looks at the roles and rules, and the games people find themselves playing, often unwillingly. She analyses African women's struggle to find their rightful place in society. Her stories raise issues of choice and conflict, teasing about the issues with disarming frankness. How do people behave in cross-cultural relationships?

In this collection of short stories, Aidoo elevates the mundane in women's lives to an intellectual level in an attempt at challenging patriarchal structures and dominance in African society. Written from a child's perspective, Aidoo subverts the traditional beliefs and assumptions about the child's voice.   Warrior Women: Years of Courage and Heroism introduces us to empresses, revolutionaries, spies and fighter pilots who have all displayed the "cool and lonely courage", as the book's authors Author: Meg Clothier.

  Parents need to know that there is graphic description of the physical, mental, and emotional trauma of a year-old girl being attacked by a shark and having her arm amputated. Profanity is present but fairly mild, and there is discussion of having boyfriends, kissing them, etc.3/5.
