From the Back Cover
She stole your ideas and took them to your boss. She gave you a compliment, but it sounded more like an insult. She shared your secret with a few of her friends. Yep, the mean girl is back. What you thought you left behind in high school has now followed you to college, the neighborhood, and even the workforce. The truth is that even adult women find all kinds of ways to be mean. So what's a girl to do? Mean Girls All Grown Up shows you why you might have a mean girl in your life, how you can discover what she has against you, and why calling on God for restoration and freedom is the ultimate way to get rid of mean for good. If you remember the gossip, insults, and cutthroat competition like yesterday because it was yesterday, then this is the book for you. Mean Girls All Grown Up can help you get past the hurt and look at women, including yourself, in a whole new light. Hayley DiMarco is the best-selling author of many books for teens, including Mean Girls and Mean Girls Gone. Now reaching adults, Hayley helps organizations communicate with a postmodern mind-set through her company, Hungry Planet.

While I can see why several readers were disappointed, I do think the author has some excellent analysis here. I also think that "forgiving your enemies" is the best thing for one's own mental health. I don't say this out of a desire to religiously parrot, however. I truly think that when one holds grudges they drink a glass of poison every day while expecting the other person to die. Furthermore, I admit to my own hypocrisy here as I have been unable to forgive properly on a handful of occasions. Yet, the way she advocates is undoubtedly best for the person cursed with the ire of mean women.
See, look, did it help me be less mean? No. No-- it dinn't.
Boundaries by Dr Henry Cloud and Dr John Townsend will help deal with these issues.
Why don't these people sell their books in the Christian Bookstore where they belong?
For those of us who are agnostic, or even atheists, or who are not Christian, reading remedies based on what "god would want us to do" is not credible and makes no sense to us. It just seems like one more way of not taking responsibility for our actions, as if god was going to just take care of it all while we "trust" in god to handle things, quietly retreat to church on Sunday to pray. That is nonsense. The Mean person or bully needs to be confronted and made accountable and stopped by US, not god. He/She is NOT going away no matter how much we pray or leave it up to god. What are these people thinking - this is the 21st Century folks.
