Dirty Little Secrets
Breaking the Silence on Teenage Girls and Promiscuity
From the author of Loose Girl
From the author of the provocative hit memoir Loose Girl, this is an eye-opening look at the dangerous, secretive world of today's adolescent girls who use casual sex as a means to prove their worth-to boys, to friends, and to themselves. Cohen examines how we got to this point, where young women use male attention like a drug and why they keep going back, even though the behavior is often self-destructive. Featuring current research and interviews with over 70 girls, this is a wake-up call for parents everywhere that's not to be missed.
Praise for Loose Girl:
"Cohen's brutal honesty and her relentless quest for companionship is refreshingly relatable." -Entertainment Weekly
"A perfect companion book to Mary Pipher's Reviving Ophelia. Together, they are must-reading for anyone who has ever known, or been, a teenage girl." -Buffalo News
