Description

In this complete reimagining of the Robin Hood legend, the "merry men" are a roving gang of fiercely unique queer female bikers, street racers, and bandits, whose leader, Robin, drives them from a life of greed to a pledge to "steal from the rich" and give back to queer girls in need of help.

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.
