Female adolescence through the eyes of teenage girls for a teenage-girl audience. This empowering volume introduces the reader to an insider's view of teenage girlhood. Through their participation in The Girl Project -- created in 2007 by Kate Engelbrecht to explore the personal realities of modern female adolescence -- teenage girls contributed intimate, heartwarming, diarylike text entries and photographs that capture their personal and private moments. The girls touch upon universal issues, such as their struggles with self-confidence and body image, relationships with peers and family, and their dissatisfaction with how they are presented by the media and in popular culture.
Teen readers will be rewarded with a wonderful set of sincere, deep messages and the reassurance that they are not alone.
