You have done a great job researching and documenting the problems of adolescent girls and give sound, practical advice. From insecurity, to appearance, to competition, to anxieties, to break-ups with boyfriends, your book brings life to the descriptions of the problems by using the voices of many different girls. It should be helpful to parents as they look for ways to help their daughters deal with the stresses of growing up without contributing to the difficulties! What I especially appreciated was the focus on the future: we want our girls to be learning how to be confident, capable adults.
