" The page designs are interesting and have teen appeal, while the interactive activities make this book accessible and one that teens can share with their friends. Overall, the contents and quotes support the purpose of this book, and its is an upbeat look at the challenges that face teens growing up today. Schools, libraries, and clubs that serve middle school girls in particular may find this book a useful reference guide. " - VOYA "Sporting a sassy, appealing cover, The Girl Guide elbows its way into the already-crowded market of self-help and self-esteem-building books. There's a bit of genius at play here as the author gives the gift of time to her readers-time to reflection and for de-stressing through the act of creating. " - School Library Journal "I really appreciate how THE GIRL GUIDE breaks everything down, giving girls the tools to make mature decisions based on what they truly think, know and feel, rather than on impulses that come up in the heat of a moment." - Working Moms Against Guilt "For those parents, librarians, teachers and counselors who have teens that are struggling to find their own identity, or even that enjoy getting to know themselves better. Definitely a delicious pick!!" - Novel Nutritious "The Girl Guide is an easy-to-read, profound book that allows teenagers to understand it's the world that is different, not the teenager. I'm picky about the type of books that I introduce to my kids and I must say, this is one of the superior ones." - A Reader's Refuge
