Six Angry Girls by Adrienne Kisner.  A group of seniors become politically active after meeting at the local yarn shop.  Their goal: to smash the patriarchy at school.

This Will Be Funny Someday by Katie Henry.  A 16-year old girl accidentally walks into a stand-up comedy club and discovers she's a "natural."

Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry by Joya Gaffney. When a girl's journal filled with "lists" of what she does and doesn't like goes missing, one of the lists ends up on Instagram.  Someone is blackmailing her, and she must get that book back.
