Awesome!

It helped understand the book more than usual. The voices helped me pay more attention instead of my mind going else where.

A book I want my daughters to read.

This book does an excellent job of guiding the reader through what does and does not make a healthy relationship. It also has a lovely outlook on how young people should view themselves and their bodies with an assertive hint to adults and schools about how to handle the confusion that strikes middle and high schoolers without damaging delicate hearts. I hope my 13 and 16 year old daughters will read this book!
