Girl to Girl:The Real Deal On Being A Girl Today
by Anne Driscoll
Girls are fun, active, interesting and strong. Girls are loud and quiet sweet, silly and serious. Sometimes, they want to be out there doing stuff, other times, they just want to be alone in their room. But most of all, growing up for girls is about RELATIONSHIPS. Relationships are the most important thing in the world to them. Here, in girls own voices, is what they think about, care about and want to share. The Detroit News wrote, Driscoll surveyed hundreds of girls from around the country - and the world - regarding their experiences with friends, family, teachers, boys and more. What she found is that the majority shared experiences from which other girls could learn. In their own voices, girls tackle some of the big issues (boys, body image, friends) with Driscoll's advice on building better relationships and self-confidence. And, Publishers Weekly called the work, A girl power book for pre-teens, continuing, Girl to Girl: The Real Deal on Being a Girl Today spills secrets of keeping friends, cracks the code of boyspeak and gives the skinny on body image. Quotations from preteen girls pepper the text with a chorus of voices, along with sidebars, quizzes, cartoon illustrations and profiles of regular girls.
