Book 2 in the EJ series increases in interest and activity, while carrying an underlying message that gender is no barrier to excelling at anything. It focuses on self improvement, physical activity and imagination. This series shows promise. I see it as evolving to incorporate in a positive way, a range of issues that younger girls face.
