I liked many things about this book. I did find it helpful and educational as a mother of three girls & definitely took away some great knowledge. I also enjoyed reading the actually case studies that she used as examples of the different issues facing adolescent girls. I also appreciated that she frequently explained how to she helped the girls and the families. It made the problem seem a little more manageable. She also goes after the American culture as a whole and challenges it's treatment of women of all ages. It really made me think about the things I have come to accept as "just the way things are".
Review: Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent GirlsUser Review - Summer Thorp-lancaster - Goodreads
I read this many years ago when my now-teenager was a then-toddler. I thought it might be outdated, but I was so very wrong. It is, unfortunately, still incredibly relevant and worth reading. I encourage anyone who has a young girl or spends time around young girls to read this. Read full review
