About the Book
Our culture's narrow standard of beauty robs our daughters of their birthright to be self-accepting beings whose authentic power resides internally. Media images, advertising messages, peer pressure, the diet industry, and enduring family standards constantly reinforce the priority of thinness - the preferred look - over balanced nutrition and healthful choices, and over celebrating diversity and the inner spirit. It has become normal for our children to judge themselves and others harshly based on physical size, weight, and shape.
In the most abundant nation in the world, our girls are starving for a foundation of self-esteem that will support them through adulthood. This book is written by teenage girls who have weathered their own storms, who have emerged with deeper self-esteem, and who want to help lead the way. The voices of wise teens are complemented by guidance from professional health experts, each of whom has nurtured her own daughters.
The truth is that we are already good enough, and already beautiful. And so are our daughters. Read this book with your favorite tween and discover what the Girls Rock! teen mentors already know: YOU rock!
