It opened up great dialogue & I loved its message of empowerment for girls. I wish I had something like this growing up. The book offered insightful strategies and was very timely for tweens of this generation. I appreciate that it included topics such as being aware of screen time and that all elusive "online perfection".
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this or gift it to all the tween girls I know and love.
worth every penny!
