A book full of fun, fashion and tips on helping you find your way through the teenage years. Interspersed between craft activities and style tips are sections of information on tough issues such as bullying, depression and popularity.
This book has been put together by Maggie Hamilton who has done some intense studies of teenage girls and authored the book ‘What’s Happening to Our Girls?’
The serious information is kept concise whilst letting them know that they are not alone in experiencing these feelings.
In the spirit of living in a multicultural country we are given peeks into the lives of girls from different cultural backgrounds. To show you what girls are capable of, women who have achieved success in a great variety of careers are given brief profiles.
As well as recipes for all sorts of things there are plenty of fashion and gift craft ideas.
This is a wonderful gift idea for a creative teenager, full of plenty of ideas to help them develop their own style, and work through the time of figuring out their own identity, something that can be a tricky thing to do. A previous book I mentioned that ran along a similar vein was great for tweens and young teens but this one is aimed at older teens. I would say best suited for 14-16 year olds.
Definitely worth a look.
