Lucy is featured in a new book called Go Girl about epic New Zealand women. Being in the same book as the legendary Nancy Wake is seriously cool. Nancy Wake was an Australian/New Zealand war hero. A true warrior. A genuine gutsy lady who went up against the Gestapo/Nazis. The Gestapo nicknamed her The White Mouse and became one of the most wanted Resistance leaders. LEGENDARY. Nancy is one of the most courageous women ever born and it’s a huge honour for Lucy to be in the same book as the legendary Nancy Wake. (I’m a World War II history nut).
Anyhoo…the book features Lucy as well (it’s a little hard NOT to include Lucy as a can-do Kiwi woman, isn’t it?)
A stunning illustrated storybook for the girls of New Zealand with a powerful can-do message!
Go Girl is a collection of true stories about New Zealand women who have done extraordinary things.
They strove for their goals.
They weren’t afraid to step up or speak out.
They blazed a trail for others to follow.
This book was written to show that YOU can join them!
