The Radical Element (A Tyranny of Petticoats #2)

In an anthology of revolution and resistance, a sisterhood of YA writers shines a light on a century and a half of heroines on the margins and in the intersections.To respect yourself, to love yourselfshould not have to be a radical decision. And yet it remains as challenging for an American girl to make today as it was in 1927 on the steps of the Supreme Court. It's a decision that must be faced whether you're balancing on the tightrope of neurodivergence, finding your way as a second-generation immigrant, or facing down American racism even while loving America. And it's the only decision when you've weighed society's expectations and found them wanting. In The Radical Element, twelve of the most talented writers working in young adult literature today tell the stories of the girls of all colors and creeds standing up for themselves and their beliefswhether that means secretly learning Hebrew in early Savannah, using the family magic to pass as white in 1920s Hollywood, or singing in a feminist punk band in 1980s Boston. And they're asking you to join them....

The Radical Element (A Tyranny of Petticoats #2) Reviews

  • Lauren Stoolfire

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    As an American girl in the past and the present the decision to respect yourself can sometimes be challenging and radical. You have to face it whether you're neurodivergent, a second-generation immigrant, or facing racism. Self-respect is the only decision when you've weighed societal expectations and found them wanting. In this anthology, twelve talented YA authors present stories of all sorts of girls from all colors and creeds

    A Tyranny of Petticoats Series Ratings:

    A Tyranny of Petticoats: TBR

    The Radical Element: ★★★★



    Thank you to Netgalley for providing me an advanced reader copy in exchange for my honest review.

    We need empathy now more than ever. We need to read stories about, and especially by, voices that have been traditionally silenced and erased from history. We need curious, open-minded, open-hearted teenagers (and adults!) like you.

    This, along with the first book, make such an excellent addition to historical YA fiction. Many of these short stories could do well as full-blown books, but it wasn't to the detriment of the stories themselves.

    Favorites in the collection came in the second half, in part because I find the 1900s more interesting than the 1800s. Tops stories would be "Step Right Up" by Spotswood, "Glamour" by Anna-Marie McLemore, "Land of the Sweet, Home of the Brave" by Stacey Lee, "The Birth of Susi Gogo" by Me

    Actual rating: 3.83 stars (you do get weird ratings when you read anthologies)

    I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Reviewing and rating anthologies is usually tricky, because you can't always love all of the short stories they are made of; yet, for The Radical Element, I can say that I enjoyed all of them and that the messages the anthology was trying to get through were executed well. The Radical Element is an empowering read that focuses on young women who di

  • April (Aprilius Maximus)

    Definitely the weakest of the two anthologies in this series. My favourite was definitely Sara Farizan's 'Take Me With U'!

    You're A Stranger Here by Mackenzi Lee - 2.5/5 stars

    The Radical Element is a historical fiction anthology about radical and dauntless young women throughout American history. It follows girls ahead of their times, marginalized girls, girls who were in some way unconventional.

    It’s the second book in a series. The first, A Tyranny of Petticoats, followed brave and “badass” girls; I read it more than a year ago, and I remember having mixed feelings on it. I liked this one a bit more, though it had its low points too.

    Overall, this didn't disappoint.

    While this story was incredibly insightful into Jewish tradition and belief, I found it bland and forgetful. I think it's an important story to show women and the struggles of religion they faced/still face in some places today, but I felt I was reading a history lesson rather than a fictional story. However, I liked the c

    Last year I reviewed A Tyranny of Petticoats , which came on my radar because I received it in a Book Mail box from Book Riot. When I saw The Radical Element on NetGalley, I wanted to see how the second volume of this anthology series compared. Thanks to NetGalley and Candlewick Press for the eARC! I adored this book for what it is, and while I didn’t love every story, it was a great end-of-the-week read.

    The Radical Element is also edited by Jessica Spotswood, but you don’t need to have read A
