This book is a Christian book to help teen girls. It is incredibly helpful spiritually AND socially. Also in reality, girls are vengeful; it is nieve to say they aren't. This is where most of teen girls' bullying comes from... I adore this author. She has helped so many...

    Proselytizing at its worst

    Echoing the recent movie by the same name, Mean Girls is touted as a Christian self-help guide for young girls who are victimized by female bullies. Books that are marketed to Christian teens have gotten very clever about using teen language, bright covers, and creative layout to increase appeal to teens. To that end, the author uses a confidential ¿big sister¿ voice--replete with teen idioms--that comes straight from the pages of teen magazines. The layout of the book is eye-catching, with a style reminiscent of a school notebook, complete with text highlighting. But the content of the book veers between practical suggestions on helping teens cope with bullying and an overly repetitive, heavy handed proselytizing that ends up dominating the text. To make matters worse, the book is riddled with the worst gender stereotyping--girls are told that they are vengeful by nature and gossipy and that boys are not ¿emotional.¿ Perhaps the most eloquent moment in the book is the author¿s painful account of her own experiences at the hands of ¿mean girls.¿ Although there are some useful and clever strategies here for teen girls trying to cope with bullies, the main thrust of this book is devoted to the promotion of conservative Christian beliefs. With stricter editing and less evangelizing, this book would have broader appeal, but as it presents the viewpoint of only one particular Christian ideology, it would have little interest or usefulness to Christian teens outside of this narrow focus.
