Editorial Reviews

This upbeat book seeks to inspire young women to recognize their potential to have an impact on their schools and communities by offering their time and talents. Readers are reminded by the girls whose stories appear herein that "we can all help make things better" and that "even a kid like me could make a difference to somebody somewhere." It serves as both an instruction book that defines the concepts of positive activism, volunteering, and philanthropy while providing true-life stories of contemporary teens who can testify to the numerous benefits of getting involved in a cause in which one believes. The format of the book makes it accessible and easy to use. The early chapters provide tips for getting started, things to ask oneself before leaping in, and other practical considerations. The authors also include lists of Web sites, books, and organizations that could be helpful to someone seeking further guidance. The largest part of the book is devoted to the profiles of girls who can serve as examples. They describe their experiences as volunteers and offer advice to their peers. These stories would serve as inspiration to a greater number of girls if they reflected a more diverse group. Instead these girls all seemed to come from similarly supportive family situations and socioeconomic backgrounds and were all exemplary students with many extra-curricular activities. Nevertheless the suggestions provided make it a book that could be useful to the patrons of school or public libraries. VOYA CODES: 3Q 3P M J (Readable without serious defects; Will appeal with pushing; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9). 2005, Prufrock Press, 191p.; FurtherReading., Trade pb. Ages 11 to 15.

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Karnes and Stephens have created an information-packed resource for young women who want to help make a difference in their lives and the lives of others. Most of the text is devoted to the stories of volunteers. These peer role models will serve as positive encouragement and empowerment for readers. Curious to note, however, is that one quarter of the girls featured attend Hathaway Brown, a private school outside Cleveland, OH. The practical strategies and step-by-step instructions throughout make volunteering a less daunting task. Web sites, books, and organizational information and addresses for readers to reference as they volunteer in their schools, their communities, and the world are included. Those looking to get involved in service projects will find this an inspiring and motivational guide.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
