I enjoyed this book, even though it gave me an ulcer every time I picked it up. ;)
My adolescence was not tumultuous. I was a typical teenager, but perhaps more grounded than some, and immune to some of the drama that went on. Reading this book was a walk down memory lane, the worst parts of it--it reminded me of the times when I felt least secure in myself.
Because my children are clearly prepubescent, I think the book was easier to read than if we were in the throes of 14/ 15 year old girl rearing. But, that was why I read it now. I wanted some of the ideas presented to have germinating time.
Also, because I do sometimes work with teens, I'm always looking for resources for parents.
In about 5 years I'll probably buy myself a copy for personal reference.
