Gr 10 Up-A beautifully designed book that promotes what Paul calls "a new philosophy for girls." Gorgeous full-color photographs are punctuated with brief, inspirational text. The author urges readers to use the book as a tool to help them realize their true selves and take charge of their lives. One key lesson for would-be girlosophers is that "it's your life-think about it." The highly stylized layouts incorporating colorful backgrounds, numerous clear photos and reproductions, and a variety of fonts in silver, white, and bright shades help to illustrate the various messages. While she makes the point that the women and girls in the photographs, "are not professional models," readers may have a hard time believing her. Similar in scope and flavor to Mindy Morgenstern's The Real Rules for Girls (Girl Press, 2000), this text has a more serious, New Age tone. Between the attractive art direction and the intelligent suggestions for life, this book is a real winner and sure to appeal to teens.
