This is one of my bibles - and it's the seminal text in girls' psychology. Lyn Mikel Brown and Carol Gilligan are two of the foremothers of girls' psychology. Don't work with or write about girls without reading this book!
This book, along with Reviving Ophelia, gives new insights into how girls and women think, as well as possible causes for trends found in adolescent girls. Very informative, highly recommend to those interested in adolescent psychology and developmental behavior.
Important information on girl's development in our culture and how friendships affect us. Used this for my graduate thesis.
