    Outstanding Book for Young Teen Girls

    This is the kind of book I'll be reading over and over. I loved taking the quizzes, and I really learned something about myself when I saw the answers. The Liz Says sections were so interesting and SO REAL. I know that the final chapter Dream On is going to help me.THANKS FOR WRITING THIS BOOK!!!
