Girl Waits with Gun

I think Amy Stewart must be something more than human. She has written a number of nonfiction books on various topics (including Wicked Plants, which I highly recommend) and now she has come onto the historical fiction scene with her powerful debut, Girl Waits with Gun.

Girl Waits is an excellent story that follows three sisters trying their best to survive in a world that does not support them, and to beat back the threat of a man who wants them dead. It’s engaging and funny, with excellent, complicated characters and a story so fantastic it’s easy to forget that it happened to real people.

This is a case where you can totally judge a book by its cover. It’s just as awesome as you’d expect from this picture.

If you’re interested in historical fiction that focuses on the early 1900s and/or badass women taking care of business, definitely pick up Girl Waits with Gun. You’re bound to have a great time. And if you’re not interested in historical fiction or super ladies, pick it up anyway. It may just change your mind.
