I deffinitely recommend this book for adolescent and teen girls, and for that matter, anyone who’s ‘been there’.
This book would be a wonderful way to segue into discussions on a variety of topics including literature, Jane Eyre, symbolism, self-image, bullying, body language in art, and much more. I plan on reading this book with my 11 year old daughter later this year.
