    In Young's timely but heavy-handed sequel to Girls with Sharp Sticks (2019), Mena and the Innovations Academy (IA) girls, having discovered that they are AI, wrestle with questions of identity and humanity, while working to destroy the company that created them. Their dystopian, near-future society is still reeling from a now-overturned executive order that stripped women of rights. The girls travel to Connecticut to find one of IA's biggest investors, hoping to blackmail him into withdrawing his funding. His son reportedly attends Ridgeview Prep, so Mena and Sydney enroll; there they endure rampant disgusting behavior from boys, tacitly endorsed by complacent adults. Meanwhile, the girls interact with several others that claim to be allies but have conflicting plans, especially when it comes to the girls' programming. Young keeps the emotional stakes high by focusing on Mena's perspective. As an outsider, Mena is uniquely positioned to highlight how normalized misogyny is for those who've grown up under its shadow. As blunt as Young is with her message, this volume will make readers both thoughtful and furious. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
