liked it

I really liked some of the stories in this book and some of them were just okay. Most of them deal with body image in some way, which is fine but I wish there had been a little more diversity. Almost all the stories involve girls and their mothers, but not one of them showed a girl's relationship with her father, for example. This would be an interesting book to use for a mother/daughter discussion or to read with a young woman in your life. Grades 7+

Becky I agree, Abby. It would have been nice to see some father-daughter relationships.

Jocelyn As the editors of the Cleavage collection, Deb & I would just like to clarify that the call for submissions was for stories about mothers and daughters and body image issues. That's the theme of the book, and that's why all the stories feature a teen and her mom rather than her dad. We agree it would make a great mother/daughter discussion book.
