We’re back to bring you the perfect companion to "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls!"

After the record-smashing success of "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls Volumes 1 and 2," we are back to announce "I Am a Rebel Girl: A Journal to Start Revolutions" + the second season of "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls - The Podcast" + a fantastic tote bag collection!

UPDATE: Stretch goal added! Let's get to $250K and each journal will include a set of 12 astonishingly beautiful stickers!

Thanks to your support, the "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls" series has become a global phenomenon translated into over 46 languages! Today, our books are fueling the dreams of more than 3 MILLION GIRLS around the world! But our mission is not over. It’s never been more important to raise girls who are ready to speak up and to take their destiny into their own hands, and this is what "I Am a Rebel Girl" is for.

I AM A REBEL GIRL: A JOURNAL TO START REVOLUTIONS

"I Am a Rebel Girl" is the beautifully illustrated companion to the "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls" book series.

Train your rebel spirit and embrace your full potential by following inspirational prompts written by authors Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli. Celebrate your ambition without reserve, love your body without shame, organize rallies, plan businesses, and work out the details of your adventurous life!

With original artwork by the female artists who illustrated the iconic "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls" books, "I Am a Rebel Girl" will help all the rebel girls in your life embrace their own potential with joy and determination and become agents of change.

From a stunning cover that begs to be personalized to an interior developed with you in mind, "I Am a Rebel Girl" creates space for BIG ideas and it empowers girls to discover themselves and change the world.

"I Am a Rebel Girl" was created with the same attention to environmental safety as "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls Volumes 1 & 2."

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls - THE PODCAST, SEASON 2

In Season 1 of "Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls - The Podcast" we transported you into the heart of the Greenbelt Movement as Melinda Gates narrated the inspiring story of environmental activist Wangari Maathai. We carried you to the outskirts of Mexico City to a vibrant blue house to experience the trials and victories of Frida Kahlo as told by Pamela Adlon. We traveled with you to the Moon with the story of NASA engineer Margaret Hamilton, narrated by Poorna Jagannathan.

Our first season was a phenomenal success, with 1 million downloads. The podcast was featured in the top charts of six countries, got a mention in Time Magazine’s 2018 50 Best Podcasts, and a nomination for a 2018 People’s Choice Podcast Award. 

With your support, we will produce all new adventures with the same high quality that you have come to love. Eleven new, 20-minute long episodes will premiere in the spring of 2019. In Season 2, you’ll be transported into the courtroom with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, you’ll enter the thunderous flamenco dancing world of Carmen Amaya, and you’ll trek up an erupting volcano with Katia Krafft.

TIMELINE

We didn't want to keep you waiting, so this time we've already completed research, writing, and illustration of the journal! We're ready to go to press and deliver your rewards in time for the holidays!

THE REBEL TEAM 

When we launched our first campaign, we were a team of two. When we launched last year’s campaign, we were a team of 10. Thanks to your support, we have grown to a team of 20 rebels, working from 4 countries. Though each of us brings a unique perspective, we share the same values as the books and we work in concert to inspire girls worldwide to dream bigger, aim higher, and fight harder.

Thank you to Poorna Jagannathan for so generously lending  her voice and talent to this campaign. We love you Poorna! <3 

Thank you to the rebel girls who spent a day with us, sharing their thoughts on the journal: Jade C, Camden C, Harper C, Sev'n F, Charlotte H, Ellie H, Harper Jo, Jaiya L, Karoline N, and Ruby P. Thank you to Tilda M. for sharing your rebel spirit with us and the world.

Risks and challenges

Risks are low. We've done this before and we've delivered all our rewards on time! Plus, this time we can count on an even bigger team of 20 people who are working with us every day to bring these new two fantastic projects to life. The final art for the journal is complete, our manufacturer is ready to print, and our fulfillment centers are up and running!
The podcast was a phenomenal success in its first run. We will replicate that success by working with a strong team, centered around Elettra Bargiacchi, who will return as our sound designer. To further minimize risks for the production of the podcast, we will hire a very experienced radio producer.
