Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 6 Up—"Every day is a new day. Embrace it!" Ottaviano invites girls to set their own courses as they navigate the brave new world of middle and high school. The text is filled with practical advice for embracing both the future and oneself. Acting as a guide, Ottaviano helps readers deal with external and internal conflicts, encouraging them to develop a strong sense of self and self-worth. By refusing to give in to drama, girls can discover how to stand up for themselves in spite of criticism. The author covers dealing with face-to-face encounters, social media, and one's own thoughts. Though none of the advice is new, it is packaged in an appealing format. VERDICT This spunky, encouraging tome will brighten the shelves of the teen self-help section.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"The author covers dealing with face-to-face encounters, social media, and one's own thoughts...This spunky, encouraging tome will brighten the shelves of the teen self-help section" - School Library Journal

"Easy to read and written in a conversational style, Ottaviano's advice is all about loving yourself, seeing how incredible those around you really are, and identifying true friendships...it's hard not to cheer her fight to get girls to see what a good friendship looks like and assure them that they do have something to offer. A good choice for teens looking for some inspiration and guidance.
" - Booklist

"Ditch the drama and find your inner amazing with Patricia Ottaviano's Girl World, a step-by-step big sisterly guide to rising above the doubts that haunt us girls. And after all...as the founder of the nonprofit organization Sister Soldier: Stand Up for Each Other, a school assembly and empowerment program for girls, it's safe to say Trish knows what's up." - Justine Magazine

Format: Paperback
In a tech obsessed world this book is a MUST for any young girl trying to get through their tween/teenage years! These years are crucial for anyone and not always a walk in the park - there will always be bumps along the way. Girl World is easy to read and relatable for young readers & perfect for anyone who is looking for someone to have their back. As a parent, I am extremely thankful for this book because it has helped me understand what my daughter may be going through and how I can be there for her along the way.

As a 6th grade teacher, I often find myself helping young girls manage the challenges of their teenage years. Thank you to Patricia and Girl World my job will be a little bit easier this year. Patricia has written a wonderful book that will help young girls navigate the toughest years of their lives and realize their full potential. I'm so looking forward to adding this book to my classroom library and giving it to my students as a wonderful resource!

I’m so happy there is a book out there that young girls can have in their back pocket! I didn’t have this when I was younger & I think it is a helpful and necessary guidebook. It’s incredibly inspirational and easy to relate to. I bought this for my younger sister who is going into the sixth grade - she loves it!

Please encourage your daughters to read this uplifting and helpful book! Girl World offers real-world, practical advice and comfort to young girls. Miss Ottaviano has done an excellent job in speaking clearly and compassionately to a population that is often under-considered. Bullying isn't the old-school type of boy-brawling. It is complex and very damaging, thanks to the accessibility of social media and the delusion of being anonymous when posting mean things. Girl World explains the dynamic of bullying and what to do about it.

I know Trish from highschool and I am so excited for her/this! Who better to write this book than the one person who actually learned something from highschool and who used her talents to make a difference. More than a lot of us can say for ourselves, huh?!? This book is a genuine and heartfelt effort to positively influence and guide the experience of highschool youth today.

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 12 years, 11 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This novel is the next new way to pick your true friends out of the ones stabbing you in the back and a way to survive ultimate girl drama.

The advice in this book goes over all of the aspects of how to handle "fake" friends all the way to owning up to how you affect others.
