Editorial Reviews

Review

"Harriet and Liz know their stuff, and Liz (a teen herself) makes sure every quiz is honest, fun, and often funny."
Joe Kelly, executive director, Dads and Daughters, and author of Dads and Daughters

"An empowering and engaging book. The quizzes and tips give girls tools they can use as they navigate those exciting, but sometimes tough, preteen and early teen years."
Marty Evans, national executive director, Girl Scouts of the USA

"Fun and insightful. Girls will love these thought-provoking quizzes."
Karen Bokram, founding editor, Girls' Life magazine

"Unlike most 'quizzes' for girls, the focus of this book is on getting to know and like yourself—just what girls need!"
Nancy Gruver, founder and publisher, New Moon: The Magazine for Girls and Their Dreams

More About the Author

Since 1997, I've been giving advice online. My site (http://www.AskDrM.org) has separate columns for kids, teens, young adults, and parents. My co-advisors include my son, a recent college graduate, and my daughter, a college senior. We don't always agree, so readers get different perspectives on their issues. I have a Ph.D. in developmental psychology, which has given me a solid background in research and in understanding how children and adolescents develop. I use my knowledge and experience for my book projects as well as for my work as a program development and evaluation consultant. Whenever I am working on a book, I do lots of interviews and focus groups. Previously, I have been a college professor in psychology and a vice-president for Girl Scouts of the USA. I love to give talks to community groups, at schools, and on radio and television. I am also interviewed frequently by newspaper and magazine writers. Sharing information and helping kids and parents deal with concerns, such as bullies and family communication problems, are important to me. For example, when I appeared on the Today Show, I spoke about Internet safety and was able to provide advice that could help kids avoid dangerous situations. My volunteer work includes being a member of the American Bar Association Commission on Youth at Risk and the Advisory Commission to the Standing Committe on Public Education.

The day after I bought this book, a bunch of my friends slept over at my house, and we spent the whole night doing the quizzes. We found out so much about ourselves and each other and became even better friends. My mom kept telling us we had to go to sleep, but we couldn't put the book down. Since you can take these quizzes more than once, my friends and I are already planning another sleepover in a few months so we can see how we've changed.

Fantastic book for my teenage daughter. She was constantly on-line searching for quizzes and making them up to pass along to friends - so this book was a great hit with her. The quizzes are cool. I wondered if she'd think they were "lame", but she's loves the book. It's always open on the coffee table.

i am 13 years old and i got this hoping it would be really fun and that me and my girl friends could use it at a sleep over. i was very disappointed in it i guess that its a good product just not the write age group. i suggest getting it for someone between the ages of 8 and 10! but check out more amazon.com products because amazon is amazing just not this product!
