really liked it

Enlightening. I was hesitant about this book's thesis. But after refection I agree that a girl's position in the social heirarchy can affect whether she becomes a perpetrator, bystander, or victim first among her relationships with girls and then later among her relationships with boyfriends.
I also now see the limitations of a "just say no" campaign.
And besides just scaring parents by iluminating the realities of Girl and Boy World in Adolescence, Wiseman also offers tips, techniques, scripts for better communication between parents/children, children/friends, girlfriends/boyfriends. I haven't yet purchased my copy, but I'm considering adding this book to my shelf for reference. Meaty reading especially if you reflect about your own experiences.
