it was ok

I (obviously) am not the parent of an adolescent girl, but one of my colleagues recommended this book to me since we are starting to see some clique-ishness in the older girls at the school where I serve. The book has a very particular audience (parents), and sometimes the author's preachy tone and manner of simplistically classifying types of girls or situations rubs me the wrong way. I also tend to think that much of this is common sense. However, I suppose for some parents, this would be a decent road map of how to navigate parent-daughter interactions during the child's adolescence. And for anyone wishing to reminisce about the horrors of middle school mean girls, this will definitely bring up some bad memories . . .
