The list author says: "These are the best books for girls (and their mothers) that I've read this year with my daughter. All bring up wonderful discussion points. Some are edgy, some are optimistic, but all offer great stories and opportunities to bring mothers and daughters together."
"My favorite story of the year! A beautiful, earthy, green story of a girl who refuses to give up her sister for lost. Three generations of very different women come together, girls find their strength through nature, and magic literally lights up the woods. A must-read!!!"
"If you haven't read Stargirl yet, you're missing one of the best all-around stories for girls. An amazing story of acceptance, eccentricity, diversity, and love. One of my favorites for mothers and daughters!"
"I didn't think I'd like this book, but my daughter wanted to read it because all her friends had read it and loved it. I have to say, it held my interest, and I wanted to get the others in the series as well. Great opportunity to talk about looks, image, and what really matters."
