About the Book

An empowering and exhilarating look at the girls who went before us, and the way they shaped the world.

Ming Qong is convinced that girls must have changed the world, just as boys did, even if few girls had major roles or are even mentioned in history books. So when a strange apparition, who calls herself 'Herstory', offers Ming Qong the chance to go back in time to see a girl change the world, Ming accepts enthusiastically. It will be the greatest adventure in the world!

But Ming doesn't find herself in a palace or an explorer's ship. Instead, she ends up on a drought-stricken farm living as Flo Watson, whose indomitable Aunt McTavish rescues Ming and takes her back to Sydney. There, Aunt McTavish and the remarkable Louisa Lawson are fighting for a referendum so that NSW will join a new nation of Australia, one where children no longer starve in factories and women have the vote.

But as Ming faces anti-female demonstrations, snakes, deadly dust storms, prejudice, and even a tiger, she learns that changing the world is not easy.
