When I opened this book and started reading through the questions, I was transported back to my own “tween” years nearly as powerfully as if I’d time traveled there. Things I had forgotten years ago came immediately to mind as I read the questions- as did the feeling that I was the only one who didn’t understand what was going on in these situations. I remember thinking that there was a code that everyone understood but me, and thinking that the very questions posed in this book were “dumb.” I never asked most of them, even though my mom or any other trusted adult could probably have given me perfectly satisfactory, common sense answers. I think there is huge value in letting kids know that their experience is universal. It’s one thing to think you’re the only one who doesn’t know how to respond when a friend is kind to you when you’re alone, but bullies you when you are around other friends. It’s quite another to know that this is something that happens to everyone eventually. Just removing the “why ME?” aspect of the question is a powerful coping tool. I can remember personally experiencing nearly all of the scenarios in the book.Read more ›

“With each dilemma Annie goes right to the heart of hurt feelings with empathy and understanding. Then she skillfully guides the reader to view the problem from a new perspective. In the end Annie encourages the student to consider taking a specific positive action.
“Annie doesn’t promise everything will turn out well. But each tween and teen will be wiser as they see the bigger picture with an objective eye.
“Even girls who don’t experience a specific problem will gain insight and empathy by realizing how they might be hurting one of their friends. It is hoped they’ll decide to change their behavior.
“I felt like I was getting in on the inside secrets of how girls think, feel, and act much like reading a diary or observing a private counseling session with a master counselor.
“Girls will love reading about themselves in this book. And they’ll gain the insights they need for creating and maintaining true friendships.”
—Jean Tracy, MSS, author of Character Building: Problem Stories for Family Discussions
