Nine stories. Nine girls. But who will be the first girl on the Moon?
First Girl on the Moon is less about reaching for the stars, and more about awakening and exploring our potential to be and do better.
I honestly needed to sit back and think about what I was feeling and why, it’s an interesting aspect of reading that I’ve not experienced before. The writing style was also wonderfully visual, and I flew through this book in one sitting.
