Everyone struggles in some way in these turbulent years. Rebecca offers practical strategies to short circuit some of the pain. She keeps topics relevant to today (having a positive body image; binge drinking and working out who the true friends are) while also adding timeless gems (trusting your intuition; learning how to bounce back and coping with school work pressures and young love).
Rebecca doesn’t pretend to know it all, but she’s done her research. She’s given the main ideas within each topic, then provided reading lists and websites if you want to look deeper.
I wish someone had written this decades ago, but at least it has finally arrived. Find Your Tribe: every teenage girl’s survival kit to today’s secondary years. You’d be mad not to have it.
