This is a fun story, because really: who doesn't want to read about queer librarian spies? It's weighted a little heavily on the Western side of Western SFF for my tastes, but it was well written and I enjoyed reading about the characters' journeys. ( )

Upright Women Wanted
by Sarah Gailey

This story takes place in the US in an alternate time. The State has authorized material and reading unauthorized material can get you killed. So can loving the same sex. This book follows Esther, who watched her girlfriend hang after being caught with the wrong material. Her father also wants to marry her off to a guy she doesn't like. She runs away by hiding in the back of the Librarian's book wagon.

Librarians transport authorized material around so everyone can read the same books, see the same movies. Esther wants to become a Librarian.

This book follows the partly wild west style adventure of these women who are considered State authorized helpers but underneath they work for the resistance. This is how Esther grows from seeing the world under a iron fist to trying to make a change.

It's full of action, romance, hope, and growth. Great characters and plot. Loved the unique world. ( )

I really enjoyed this, but I wish it would have been more than it was.

What I loved

The worldbuilding. A post apocalyptic world mixed with the wild west, yes, sign me up! An oppressive government and a group of female librarians working for the rebellion under the cover of being 'proper women' - sign me up! The premise is cool and I feel there are a lot of great stories to be told in this world.
The representation. I love representation and here it didn't feel forced, it fit the story and got its message accross clearly without hitting you over the head with what it wants you to take away from it.
The writing. It was engaging, very on point and I want to read more of this. I will definitely check out more books by Sarah Gailey.

What didn't work for me

I don't know if a novella was the right format for this story. It actually took me a bit to get into it, which I feel a novella shouldn't do. And then once it got started, it tried to do so much in the little time it had. I feel like this story should have been told in a novel or it should have been shortened to fit the length of a novella. As it is, some of the resolutions came too quickly for me, without much buildup, and at the same time I wished for more character development, but there wasn't time to explore those characters further and most of them ended up a bit flat.

I wish I could read a whole novel set in this world, and I hope someday I will. ( )

Gailey, Sarah. Upright Women Wanted. Tordotcom, 2020.
So what if we set The Handmaid’s Tale in a steampunk version of the Old West and then made traveling women Librarians act as a revolutionary underground. They could take in a teenage runaway to learn the ropes. It makes for a rather engaging but busy novella, that’s what. Many novellas should really be short stories. But this one should really be a novel. I like our spunky runaway, but the rest of the characters aren’t quite fully there. Why are three scattered states full of rebels but the rest have a strong central State? What is the backstory on the Librarians? Are they all gay or trans? ( )

Unfortunately, I don’t think Sarah Gailey is for me. I don’t know if it’s because her books are mostly novellas or what, but I can’t connect with her characters. This audiobook was super short, but I was pretty bored. I just have trouble connecting and caring about the people in their book. ( )

As Esther breathed in the sweet, musty smell of the horse blankets in the back of the Librarians' wagon, she chewed on the I-told-you-so feeling that had overwhelmed her ever since her father had told her the news about Beatriz.
