“We can find feminist heroes in the most unlikely of places. Lucy van Pelt - the crabbiest big sister, best prankster and amateur psychiatrist - now has her own book, just to remind us of her most important lessons in being a woman … features pearls of wisdom such as “Don’t be satisfied until you’re too smart for your own good!” Essential reading”
