Teen girls get mixed messages from society about who they should be, what they should look like, and how they should deal with everyday pressures and choices.

Wouldn’t it be great if they could just be themselves?

Real Girl/Real World: A Guide to Finding Your True Self is a fun and essential guide book, where real girls share their experiences, showing that there’s no one “right” way to navigate the twisting road of adolescence. The authors explore a wide range of topics central to young women’s lives, including:

· beauty and the media
· body image and self-esteem
· eating disorders and good nutrition
· sex and sexuality
· feminism and today’s new activists

By dispelling myths and putting issues into perspective, Real Girl/Real World gives girls the power to become strong women and make informed decisions about their lives.

“Honest, straight-talking, and-most importantly-fun to read, Real Girl Real World offers young women a much-needed lifeline. Full of practical information and dozens of resources, it gives girls the tools, just when they need them the most, to stay strong and preserve their true selves.”
-Peggy Orenstein, author of “Flux” and “Schoolgirls”

“A hip, informative, and frank resource.”
-School Library Journal

“Reading through this wonderful book, I wished my friends and I had had a guide like this when we were young. I will give it to all the girls in my life.”
-Pagan Kennedy, author of The Exes
