Okida, Lyndsay Palmer, Ella Raziel, Judy Rosenfeld and Erin Walker.
Filled with adventure (both lived and imagined), heartbreak, and a deep sense of hope, the struggle of these "Little Women" to find their own voices mirrors the growing pains of a young America, reminding us that "sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true."
