Like "Boys Adrift," this book has a lot of information that I was happy to learn, and I'm glad the author wrote a book about girls. Never having been a your girl in my years growing up, some of the ideas were very new to me. One thing that struck me -- maybe it was in "Boys Adrift," too, and I simply didn't notice -- is that he gives you a horror story, something really bad that happened, and only afterwords says "now that's a rare case, but..." It seems to me that's a propaganda trick: "If you don't follow my advice, think what horrible things can occur." I still think that a lot of the information is useful, thus the high rating, but I wish the presentation would've been a little different.
