This book is a valuable introduction to mindfulness for teenage girls. The conversational tone used throughout the book makes it easy and fun to read. The mindfulness-based exercises offered are practical and relevant for teenage girls today. The author cites many personal anecdotes from her own teenage years, offering understanding and compassion for what the teenage reader might be experiencing. As a children’s mindfulness facilitator, I highly recommend this book for all teenage girls.
