    Great Book for Girls

    I'm 16 and loved this book. It tackles some issues that might be boring in other books, and makes them real interesting and fun to read. It includes stuff on eating a healthy diet, eating disorders, getting along better with family, money, job interviews/resumes. Everything you need to get you on track for life.
