Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Someday 12-year-old Olivia wants to open an orphanage for Chinese girls. Tamika, age 15, loves writing hip-hop songs. 17-year-old Valerie was afraid of heights until she decided to face her fears on an Outward Bound trip designed to help students stay in school. These girls, and more than 80 others, appear in a big, attractive volume of photo essays put together by documentary photographer Carolyn Jones in collaboration with the Girl Scouts of America. In stunning color and black-and-white photos, Jones creates illuminating portraits of the girls, but allows them to tell their stories with their own words. "I think we should just reach out to people," says Lauren. Erin says, "I've come this far and I can take anything that comes my way." And pithy Briana says, "Think big." The girls articulately and passionately speak their minds about volunteer work, family illness, racism, sports, education, homelessness, divorce, and their own remarkable accomplishments. Readers of all ages--male and female--will be inspired and heartened by this handsome celebration of the women of tomorrow. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

A collaboration with Girl Scouts of the USA, Every Girl Tells a Story: A Celebration of Girls Speaking Their Minds by photographer and documentary filmmaker Carolyn Jones, captures the voices and faces of 96 girls (some Girl Scouts, others not) aged 13-18 in full-color and b&w photographs to create one striking volume. They discuss their inspirations and their ambitions in their own words, from dreams of opening a women's clinic in Iran to becoming a U.S. senator. First Lady Laura Bush provides the foreword.

Format: Hardcover
Every Girl Tells a Story celebrates the diversity of America and shatters the stereotype of "teen-age girl". These 12-18 year old young women have lives that are active, spirits that are strong, and stories that inspire. The young women speak from their own voice and experience as they share uncommon events like cancer, birth defects, surgery, and organ transplant. They talk about the life changing events of going to a new school, being in foster care, living with disabled family members, divorce, and the death of a parent. Above it all, they dream, they help others, and they want to make the world a better place. And after reading their stories, I'm sure they will. Their stories are a voice of strength and compassion for any teen-age girl trying to find her way in the world, and an uplifting read for anyone. I highly recommend this book.

I purchased copies of this book (signed by two of the featured girls locally!) to give my 14 year old nieces on their birthdays. I wrote each niece a letter saying I hoped the book would inspire them, etc., and sent them off, fingers crossed. They both LOVED them. In fact, one of my niece's friends asked where she could get a copy too! The profiles are so diverse I think every girl can find someone to relate to. A nice gift book that will be browsed often.
