"My six-year-old fusses with her hair for hours. Is this normal?” “Yesterday my seventh grader was all sunshine. Today she’s wearing black and won’t leave her room.” “I’m worried my teenager may have an eating disorder.”

and much more

A friend recommended this book. It gives more of an understanding of what girls are going through. I would recommend it to a Christian friend.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?


What was most disappointing about Melissa Trevathan and Sissy Goff ’s story?

I couldn't get past the first few chapters, I didn't get any insights into girls behaviour. I also didn't enjoy the constant reference to god and quotes from the bible.

What didn’t you like about Sandy Burr’s performance?

The baby voices she put on were irritating.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
