"Discovery: The First Installment" teaches us what objectifying young women can lead to, and how common it is for young girls to unknowingly become a product of pop culture's message that woman are just objects. Discovery is a prime example of what happens to these people. Cutting, anorexia, promiscuity and apathy are common motifs among these young girls, and a fear of love is inevitable. The worst part, however, is that these people do not understand what the cause of these eccentricities are. This book is the first-hand account of how these behaviors come to life, and may be a bit of guidance to an unsure mind. Intended to be both a powerful story and guide for young girls, parents, teachers, and therapists, "Discovery: The First Installment" is a collection of the actual, unedited, handwritten and typed journals of Carly Costa, an eighteen-year old girl from Southern, NH. The book is an artful form of expression. Carly's voice and spirit is clearly translated to the paper through both pen and type, and is bound to leave you feeling as if you have known her your whole life. The impact this average girl will have on you may astonish you. When reading this book, we encourage you to periodically look at the pictures on the front cover. They are actual pictures of Carly taken during this part of her life. For more information, go to
