The 5 Feminist Books You Wish You Had Read As A Child

We reached out to industry experts to find out the books they wish they had read as a child.

#1 Working My Way Back To Me by April Kirkwood

This is a cinematic book that lays out in harsh technicolor all that is fake, brutal and life-snuffing about American culture. Celebrity worship, spousal abuse, sexual abuse, adultery, false religiosity, and innocence interrupted all converge into a roiling brew that boils over into one heck of a story you can't put down. A must-read in this #MeToo movement we are experiencing. -Judith Valente, senior correspondent at WGLT Radio, the NPR affiliate in central Illinois, and former correspondent for PBS-TV, Wall Street Journal, and Chicago Public Radio.

#2 Heartfelt by Cynthia MacGregor

There's a new reindeer in town. Heartfelt has a very special power — she can see into anyone's heart and know what their most heartfelt wish is. But will she ever get her own most heartfelt wish — to be part of Santa's Christmas Eve team? Heartfelt is a special needs reindeer: Her two back legs are considerably shorter than her two front legs, so her back slopes, and she wobbles when she walks, but nonetheless she's a strong flyer.
