"Using quotes from women in history and anecdotal stories of adolescent girls, "Dr. Jill" gives prescriptions for dealing with difficult situations. The chapters address relationships, drug addiction, stress, body image, parental divorce, insomnia, bullies, and having a crush on another girl, and the author offers several scenarios based on her years of experience as a psychotherapist. She encourages self-examination and taking action, including asking oneself questions and trying different remedies for problems. Every chapter encourages readers to find ways to respect themselves. The author admits that some situations are complicated and offers realistic solutions....Although the anecdotes are generic and include only a first name, they are broad in scope and right on target." -- Karen Hoth, School Library Journal
