This book of compelling photos and autobiographical stories from more than forty teenage girls who participated weekly in a two-year focus group provides validation, support and vision for girls facing the transition to womanhood. By sharing themselves intimately on topics ranging from bulimia to drugs, and from pregnancy through suicide, these young women explore the process of discovery, healing, and self-esteem; they are accompanied by interviews with accomplished women mentors - including Michele Akers, Maya Angelou, Riane Eisler, and the Indigo Girls.
