This collection of bite-size profiles of immigrant women is uplifting and enlightening. Each of the 10 narrators is an actress or artist who has immigrated to the U.S. or whose parents were immigrants. All use strong, warm voices, often inflected with accents, to share lives that include origin countries all over the world and exploits from bowling to stage magic to space discovery. Presented in alphabetical order with no discernible pattern as to which narrator reads which profile, the stories exude a sense of women who are unified by power and possibility. Household names like Rihanna join less well-known innovators like lawyer Elisa Rojas and neuroscientist Daniela Schiller. With most entries under two and half minutes, rebel girls can get quick knowledge bursts on the go. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
