I am a teenager who has been reading this book and think it's perfect for girls who are going through all the drama and social problems with friends who just never seem to agree -- or act jealous, angry, and mean. This book was the best gift my parents could have given me this year. I am learning all kinds of tips from it about how to deal and act with kids when they act out and are cruel or moody. I also agree with the author on what she says about so many things and am learning about myself more. I wish every kid could read this book and that they would also teach us some of these things in school to help us get through very hard times just coping socially and knowing how we can make our friendships work out. I feel better reading this book and like I know I have many choices to be a leader and to choose good friends to be around.

    this is great for teens

    this book is great. this book explained why theese backstabbers,bullies,and meanies do the things they do. i eventually found out that these people aren't as perfect as they seem and that they may have more problems then we think. i also really enjoyed the quizzes it helped me find out a little more about myself.

    Mean Chicks, Cliques, and Dirty Tricks: A Real Girl's Guide to Getting Through the Day with Smarts and Style

    I teach in middle school and am a direct witness every day to the mean and hurtful behaviors that go on between girls. Thank you, Dr. Karres, for this wonderful guide that gives exceptional empowerment tips to girls (and to parents and teachers, too)for dealing with difficult, nasty, and provocative personalities and behaviors among peers. I like the down-to-earth direct and very intelligent thorough coverage of topics such as bullies, teasers, newcomers, and the different realistic social situations that plague young girls and teens. The book includes inquiries/letters from girls seeking advice with very clear answers listed by the author showing comfortable ways to deal with situations; she explains why girls act the way they do and how to cope with tough peers -- to walk away feeling good and with strong sense of self and esteem! There is also a section called 'Cool Tools' that shows other resources for girls to get additional support and feel connected. I have been telling my students about some of the tips and they really like them -- I leave the book on my desk and the girls are continually asking to look through it. I recommend the book for elementary through high school age girls -- a MUST read for helping girls with empowerment, peace studies/initiatives, anti-abuse, and building healthy choices and friendships/relationships!
