Amazon.com Review

In this self-help guide for girls, Patty Ellis encourages teenage girls to take control of their own lives. She provides girls with practical advice on pregnancy, boys, substance abuse, peer pressure; physical, sexual, and emotional abuse; and more!

This book delivers a new message at teenage girls--take charge! It explains how girls can maximize their full potential as women, develop self-esteem, and make their own difference in their lives.

Ellis offers advice on how to cope with and take control of abusive situations, how to learn from rejections, good reasons not to be sexually active, how to confront life's problems while coming out on top, and how to rise above peer pressure and society's obsession with brand names.

Review

Girl Power: Making Choices And Taking Control is designed especially for today's teenage girl. Patty Ellis encourages the empowerment of adolescent girls and stresses an important message -- personal responsibility. Girl Power helps maximize their full potential as women, develop self-esteem and make their own difference in their lives. Advice is offered on many topics, including how to cope with and take control of abusive situations, how to learn from rejection, good reasons not to be sexually active, how to confront life's problems and emerge victorious, how to rise above peer pressure, and many other questions young women are afraid to ask. -- Midwest Book Review

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Carole on October 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
In this book author Patty Ellis gives advice in a manor that may lead individuals to believe that she has had some training, education, and or work experience to be considered an authority to giving advice to adolescence. The truth of the matter is that she has no experience in the field, and has the education level of a 12th grader. The book it self is by no means detrimental to readers, however where a teen gets and takes their advice from should be from someone with proper knowledge. In the mid 1990's while working as a guidance counselor this book was presented as a reader for the eighth grade girls, it caused quite a stir and many parents felt the poor grammar, and somewhat sexiest tones used by the author were some what offensive. I am only writing this review today because my own child came home from a local book sale with an old copy of this book. I could not believe this book resurfaced, but as I looked over it once again I soon realized why this was the only publication by this author. Needless to say I did not recommended that my child read this book. After two chapters she to agreed.

Packed with incredible stories, wonderful humor and terrific advice, GIRL POWER has the ability to reach the heart and mind of any teenage girl facing today's most frightening decisions. This book has had an unbelievable influence on my own two daughters. I can't recommend it highly enough.
