Thursday!  You know what you should do on Thursdays?

Buy a book!  And recommend a book! Then repeat the process!!

Today's recommendations are five excellent Science Fiction works with strong women as their protagonist. And I think you should take a look at when you get a moment:

The Calculating Stars: A Lady Astronaut Story by Mary Robinette Kowal
An alternate history of the Space Program full of good science, a diverse cast of characters, and a strong look at women in the face of adversity. Kowal's book takes place in an alternate version of the 1950's when a meteorite strike on the nation's capital changes everything. The impact will bring about a possible extinction of the human race and it's a race to get to the moon. Elma York, the MC, is a brilliant pilot and mathematician and she and her fellow pilots struggle to join the astronaut-corp even though they're "only women." - Side note: The author is also the reader of the Audible version and she is FABULOUS.

Paige's Story by A.J. Bass
It's the story of 13 year old Paige Bryan - a very smart, funny girl trying to live on a military base with sentient robots - Synthetics. Her mom and dad have been called in to help study the growing sentience in these machines and Paige gets caught up in the move. Paige has to face all the problems of trying to be a teenager while also dealing with the fact she is alienated from others simply because she lives on base... with the machines. Not to mention the religious protestors... It's a fun story with sarcasm, mystery, and a whole load of great characters. While the book is 400 pages long - it is an easy read that I had trouble putting down.
