A Hands-on Reading Experience

The four girls in the Renegade Girls Tinkering Club are just starting to explore their future as they move from elementary to middle school, and are on the cusp of becoming young adults. As life becomes more complicated, how can they grow their love of exploring and inventing into the next stage in their lives? Join these middle schoolers in ongoing adventures about learning your strengths, exploring your passions, and doing what needs to be done. 

In the books, the girls confront various roadblocks girls face on their path to becoming Women in STEM: finding their place, being dismissed as 'girly', being over-scheduled and feeling the need to satisfy other people's expectations, and perfectionism and impostor syndrome in realistic, relatable ways. There are no dark dystopian governments to overthrow, no aliens or dark gods to battle or portals to slide through, and none of the girls have superpowers. Those are all fun elements, but young girls need to know that kids JUST LIKE THEM can become scientists and engineers. You don't have to have superpowers to make a difference and follow your passions.

"Super amazingly awesome and easy to get lost in."

The Renegade Spy Project

It's a Mystery...

 

Wren Sterling knows she’s super smart and a good friend, but no matter how hard she tries, she can’t shake her reputation as a troublemaker. Her brain just doesn’t work like the brains of the other kids at Ada Lovelace Charter School. They all seem to know what’s going on. She’s just trying to get through the day. It feels like the only people who believe in her are her three best friends in the Renegade Girls Tinkering Club.

 

When the Renegades start a business inventing and selling spy gadgets, it looks like she’s finally done something right. But then they’re accused of a school crime! Can they use their own spy gadgets and ingenuity to clear their names? If they can find the real culprit, Wren might just discover she has a bright future after all.
