Hassled Girl?: Girls Dealing with Feelings

Hassled Girl?: Girls Dealing with Feelings

by Dorothy Kavanaugh

Editorial Reviews

VOYA, February 2015 (Vol. 37, No. 6) - Elizabeth Norton
With topics ranging from anger issues to bullying to first crushes and romantic relationships, the Girls Dealing with Feelings series aims to help young teen girls deal with their emotions. The books provide information about how the teenage brain works mixed with real-life scenarios and coping strategies. Among other things, they stress the importance of open communication and using “I” statements to avoid conflict. Magazine-type quizzes are included to help readers deduce how they will react in various situations. The series means well but lacks in appeal and execution. These books are not formatted to encourage casual reading, but neither are they thorough enough to be useful for report writers. Information about brain function is presented clinically and is not engaging; additionally, much of the research included is out of date, with most cited studies having been published in the early 2000s. Sources are often improperly cited or not cited at all. Back matter is repeated from volume to volume. Though the situation-specific information is good, it is sometimes incomplete. For example, Hassled Girl? deals with bullying. It states that cyberbullying is one of the most common types of bullying but offers minimal information about how to handle cyberbullies. Additionally, teens may find the advice to be trite or condescending. (Girls Dealing with Feelings) Reviewer: Elizabeth Norton; Ages 11 to 14.
