Sarah Stillman's Soul Searching: A Girl's Guide To Finding Herself explores core self-discovery subjects such as creating a sacred space using feng shui and aromatherapy; celebrating the body with yoga and massage; calming the mind by practicing meditation; listening to our inner voice with journaling and dream interpretation; attracting good karma through volunteering; and sorting out life's big questions through the study of philosophy and world religions. The advice, exercises, and personal stories are as sage as they are compelling. Soul Searching is a highly recommended, "reader friendly" addition to any personal or community library self-help, self-improvement collection. One more thing -- Sarah Stillman, the author of Soul Searching, is sixteen years of age. Such wisdom in one so young is a thing to be noted and treasured accordingly.

This is a great book! Very different from all of those superficial magazines that don't give you any real advice on living your life. 'Soul Searching' is well written, well researched, well organized, has cute drawings, and gives great advice.
'Soul Searching' has great variety in its subjects. Sarah Stillman talks about karma, philosophy, religion, creating sacred spaces, feng shui, aromatherapy, yoga and massaging, spa treatments, relaxing and meditating, visualization, journal writing, dream interpretation, hobbies/passions, etc.
Any young girl can benefit from this refreshing book on how to find your soul.

I was given this book for my birthday last year and find myself returning to it constantly, loaning it to my friends, cousins, and even my mother. Written by a teenager, it applies to the feelings of girls today, and covers topics like meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, visualization, religion, philosophy, and following your passions. Instead of the normal "top ten beauty tricks" and "best clothes of the season," soul searching teaches females to find their inner beauty, and pamper their body instead of covering it with make-up.

Soul Searching is an awesome book! It has a lot of really helpfull advice for girls in it. I found it refreshing to read something that goes beyond make-up or boys. This book focuses on things that really matter, like coping with stress, keeping a journal, relaxing with yoga or meditation, developing your own philosophy, arometherapy, and interpreting your dreams. I particularly like the chapter on becoming a philosopher. It is really cool to get advice from someone who is my own age.

This book is a gem for teenage girls. So many of us are stressed out and need a release from their everyday life: cliques, school, continuous sporting activities, and the list goes on. This book was given to me as a present, but it was more than just a book, its the gift of relaxation, meditation, and a much more calm lifestyle. I reccomend this book for all teenage girls, its truly a book to live by.
