I have been a fan of Susan Barash and 'Toxic Friends' is one of the best books I have come across. I have really enjoyed reading her most recent book, "You're grounded forever...But first let's go Shopping." The title speaks for itself and the book does great justice to it. In her book, well renowned author Susan Barash talks about 'real' mothers and daughters. She has interviewed a diverse group of women who are mothers of girls of several ages. We hear these mothers speak about the issues they face raising teenage daughters. All mothers can relate to this in depth analysis of what goes into raising girls, from the women's perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm sure you will too. From things that mothers do to please their daughters and the many challenges they face-this book has it all. Hats Off!
