A roving female gang of fun-loving rebel bikers and street racers, led by Robin, agree to give back to other girls in need of help in this stunning queer mash-up of Robin Hood and Fast and Furious.
Robin and her four Misfits--Little John, White Rabbit, Daisy Chain, and Skillet--have run away from their families in order to live off the grid on their own terms. For a while, they're hidden, safe, and happy as they commit petty crimes that provide enough to get by. All that matters is keeping their small clan alive. Then, one mission proposed by an unfriendly associate from their past reminds them of their former lives and motivates the group to a new purpose. The five Misfits develop into a league of strong individuals united by a fresh goal: do whatever it takes to help queer girls rise above oppressive laws and attitudes.
Kelly Ann Jacobson, the author of the award-winning LGBTQ+ young adult novel Tink and Wendy, is back with another diverse twist on a popular legend.
