I had a chance to preview this new book. The author has amazing insights into the social challenges facing young girls. By structuring the book as an activity journal and a series of quizzes, it does not come across as preachy. It lets the reader evaluate her own friendships one at a time and form her own natural conclusions. I wish this book had been available when my daughters were young. I’m sure it would have reduced the social stress they experienced.

Such a fun way for middle school girls to gain insight into their relationships, navigate their emotions and develop self-awareness about their social worlds. This book is bursting with fill-in-the-blanks, quizzes and activities, making it highly accessible and engaging - and the key takeaway at the end of each chapter is a helpful recap. I wish I'd had this when I was 12! ...more
