Groundwood Books’ Girls With Grit novels share real girls’ voices, and their stories, from North America and around the world. In these books, ordinary girls overcome obstacles, make their voices heard, and stand up for what they believe in.
Groundwood’s partnership with Figment was driven by the desire to seek out stories written by teens that reflected their view of the world — demonstrating that every girl is capable of amazing feats of grit.
Figment and Groundwood received hundreds of entries to their Girls with Grit contest, but one very unique story stood out from the rest. Phoebe is that unique story.
Told from the point of view of a young woman at odds with her own mind, Phoebe demonstrates the power of friendship and personal strength to overcome great obstacles.
Groundwood is proud to present this special e-book edition of Maya Lannen’s Phoebe.
