Real Girl Real World: A Guide to Finding Your True Self

Teen girls receive mixed messages about who they should be—and what they should look like—from all facets of society. It's no wonder they have difficulty finding out who they really are. This snappy, straight-talking guide—a veritable Our Bodies, Ourselves for teens—helps girls make up their own minds about what kind of people they want to be. Exploring a wide range of topics central to young women's lives—including beauty and the media; body image, ethnicity and self-esteem; eating disorders and healthy nutrition; sexual anatomy, safe sex and much more—the authors dispel myths, put issues in perspective, and give girls the power to choose for themselves.
