I remember how hard it was to be a teen, and I think the bullying, peer pressure, and expectations have only increased over the years. Lucie Hemmen's The Teen Girl's Survival Guide provides helpful exercises for teen girls to increase self-awareness, and concrete skills to help improve self-esteem and reduce the chaos and drama teen girls often encounter. This is a lovely book that aims to help teen girls think about and move toward the person they truly would like to be."
