Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This inane little book gets an A for attractive format and an F for useful content. Sequel to Mean Girls: Facing Your Beauty Turned Beast (Revel/Baker Books, 2004/VOYA February 2005), the book purports to help a girl "free your soul from the bondage of mean" and "find inner peace in the face of mean" by ignoring other girls' cruel remarks or behavior and by following God's teachings. At least half the lovely pastel pages are blank, intended for the young reader's personal, written reflections, and those that do contain text have few lines and wide margins. Many pages offer only Bible quotations or cartoon-like illustrations, often of the "teen" blasting her way to freedom from mean with her handy blowtorch. A pseudo-book containing only moralisms and essentially worthless advice, it has no place in any collection, with the exception of a Christian youth library. Anyone wishing to help a teenage girl with a "mean" problem would do better to purchase the Bible itself. VOYA CODES: 1Q 2P M J S (Hard to understand how it got published; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2005, Fleming H.
