  1. I read Stephanie’s book in one weekend. It’s a playbook for being courageous in life and standing up for issues you believe in.

  2. A thrilling ride expertly told with humor and grace. My whole family loved it!

  3. A beautiful book, perfectly interweaving Stephanie’s personal journey with the story of the Greenham Women’s Peace Camp. Her descriptions create such a vivid sense of place. A truly empowering and inspiring read.

  4. An extremely powerful book, and beautifully told. I found it very inspirational.

  5. I read this book in two sittings —- I couldn’t put it down. This is a personal story set within an important time in history that has not been adequately covered or understood. This book is a stand out among the other nominees and in this year’s non fiction offerings.

  6. This book is a compelling, heartfelt account of part of our social history that is not often told and deserves more attention. It does a great job of detailing the power of a social movement, through a personal and moving story. It deserves widespread recognition.

  7. I read this book in one long happy sitting – it reminds us that you can make a difference and have fun doing it and some fairly hair raising adventures

  8. Inspirational!

  9. Stephanie is such an amazing writer, I couldn’t put the book down!

  10. What a joy to read. The Greenham Women’s Peace Camp had a profound effect on the lives of many women, those who lived there for sure but also the many who visited and carried Greenham home with them in their hearts; this made that piece of my heart sing.

  11. Brilliantly written memoir of a time in my teenage life that those courageous women had me enthralled. Will never forget all the news surrounding them

  12. I love this book! A propulsive coming of age story of activism and optimism. Inspirational.

  13. Suddenly I was deep into it. A inspirational story story about personal discovery, activism, compassion. We meet each other now and mostly have no idea of what those early lives were for others – Those affecting people and circumstances that give us a foot hold into our older selves. I didn’t want it to end.

  14. A great example.

  15. I loved this book and how open and honest Davies was. It became such a sweet and personal reading experience. It was one of my favorite books of the year and I’ve read over two hundred. I highly recommend this book.

  16. Other Girls Like Me touched me in so many ways. It is a vivid portal into the lives of a determined group of women making a difference in the fight against the nuclear establishment. The characters are intense and colorful and a collective force to be reckoned with. A deeply personal narrative thread is woven throughout that makes me feel the energy and spirit of the struggle more deeply. I look forward to reading Other Girls Like Me again.

  17. Other Girls Like Me was filled with so much heart…..it had me smiling through tears. Such an authentic voice and lens… into coming of age activism….beautifully dancing off the pages. I highly recommend this book.

  18. I recall hearing about the Greenham Women and being secretly proud of them, at a time when I lived with elders who thought it was a disgrace. I couldn’t wait to read this, and I was not disappointed. Not only is the story moving and personal, adventurous and captivating – it is well written. It is on my “Keeper” shelf – to be re-read and re-read.
