By Karen Macklin on September 11, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book is great for tween and teen girls. It speaks to modern society's way of putting pressure on girls to be perfect all the time. You're Amazing makes a distinction between the "Supergirl" (the stressed-out girl who is afraid to fail and always trying to impress everybody) and the "Amazing Girl" (the girl who tries her best, stays confident, asks questions, and makes space for herself and her opinions in the world). It's a great read, and has lots of fill-in section where girls can journal about their own thoughts and experience, and create positive and affirming text messages to send to each other. Very empowering! -- Karen Macklin (author of "Indie Girl")

I bought this for my niece who will be 13 years old next month. I had a quick read through before I sent it. I would have loved this book when I was a teenager. It makes you aware of what other girls think.

The author asked teens about what they thought about a number of different things, and used the results in this book.

Teens reading this book find out that they aren't the only ones with problems. It tells them the percentage rate, of how the teens think about each subject on a list of topics they'd been asked about.

The book has a lot of good stuff in it, that young people can find very interesting.

It's more of a reference guide that gives opportunity to pursue many concerns for the teen years. It does not 'preach' to you as many books do. It's a very thoughtful, well-rounded presentation of what many feel young people need to know.

I bought this for my almost-12-year-old sister, and got myself the Kindle version so I can read along with her. Well, the paperback hasn't come in yet, but I've been thumbing through the Kindle version, and I think it's going to be great. She's a very smart, very positive kid, but I know she has gone through a lot that no kid should have to endure, and it has all made her so much stronger. I think it's my job as her big sister to make sure she keeps her head up through everything else. Thank you for this book - I hope it will help!
