Wonder Women of Science: Twelve Geniuses Who Are Currently Rocking Science, Technology, and the World

(3) YA Illustrated by Sally Wern Comport. Profiles of twelve (mostly American) women in STEM-related fields include lots of direct quotes from the subjects, making their paths to success relatable. Each chapter follows a similar format and includes a full-page portrait and personal photos. Career trajectories highlight "The Spark" and "The Eureka Moment"; notes "to Self" and "to You" and "Words to Live By" offer advice to readers. More about specific topics follow each biography (e.g., "Fission? Fusion? What's the Diff?"). Sixteen suggestions for STEM activities and a reading list conclude the book along with an index and glossary.
