Thoughts: I actually kind of liked parts of this book. It was not “A” worthy but it was a good read. I liked how it really got deep down into aspects that many shy away from. It is important for us girls to see what we are doing to contribute to the bullying situation. For example; in 6th grade I had a bully. Everyday she would torment me and make me late for class. I thought she was just an evil B**** and could deal with it on my own. I fought back and was nasty to her. One day she wrote, “die ...more
I am reading the book Mean Girls by Hayley DiMarco and I really like it. The character relates to me because I have a few mean girls and boys in my life and it helps me when she talks about this. This book teaches you that not all girls and boys are being mean just to be mean but it is God trying to purify you. That is also known as a test and if you fail you have to keep on trying until you pass the test. When you pass the test you will know because the mean girl with suspiciously go away and y ...more
I enjoyed reading this book because it helped me with advice on how to be kind to the mean girls who were being mean to me. It also gave me advice on how i should think of myself and not how other people think of me. It had bible verse in it and every time i got to a page with a bible verse I would always open my Bible and read the verse. I think this is a good book for all teens who have a mean girl that is being rude and judging you on how you look, how you dress. All teenagers who have a trou ...more
Good book, more like a study guide. The author does a good job working through how to end the continuation of being a mean girl as well as address why girls can be mean to you. The only thing is the book is after I have experienced and prayed about this stuff from middle school days. I already used the ultimate self-help book, the Bible, to deal with mean girls... oh and my very smart mother. As a recap, kill them with kindness, do not retaliate, and girls are just mean.
I am learning about the kind of challenges teen girls face in the public schools, on the internet, and even in text messages! This is a great book for girls who face "mean girl" challenges - really walks them through how to deal with these meanies in a non-violent, proactive way; and even face the meanness in their own selves...

I am 21, so not a teenager, but it defiently helped me figure out how to handle the 'Mean Girl' that I work with and also helped me understand many of the 'Mean Girls' I had in school. Highly recommend it to every young women and even women out there.
