Summary: "Girl Power lives! Written when the author was sixteen and updated to address the concerns of today's teens, Soul Searching brings girl power to the printed page by offering young women a clear path to self-discovery and empowerment. Through fun quizzes, insightful exercises, and provocative statistics, Sarah Stillman guides young women through the complex maze between adolescence and adulthood. While fashion magazines, television programs, and websites emphasize the superficial and foster insecurities, Stillman directs teen girls to a healthy place where a strong sense of self and direction take center stage. With updated sections on safe cell-phone use, social media, cyber bullying, health, and gender, as well as updated resources throughout, Soul Searching is a must-read for teenage girls"-- Provided by publisher.
Gross, Susan, 1960- illustrator. (Added Author).
