About Me


My name is Amy Bright and I write Girl to the Rescue, a literary blog that reviews mostly young adult literature, children’s books, graphic novels and fantasy.

I started Girl to the Rescue after I finished my MA in English, sort of as a way to get back to young adult literature and fantasy, two categories of books that were strangely lacking throughout both undergrad and graduate school classes. This blog helps out a lot particularly because a) Without school I sort of don’t know what to do with myself and b) I have a lot of time to read and write about books right now because of the “finished MA” thing. It’s a “sit down and write regularly” and also a “talk about the books I’ve really wanted to talk about over the last few years” and “find a lot of good YA lit, also fantasy.”

Thank you so much for reading this. If you’d like to reach me send an email to girltotherescue@gmail.com
