When Rosalind Wiseman first published Queen Bees & Wannabes, she fundamentally changed the way adults look at girls' friendships and conflicts--from how they choose their best friends, how they express their anger, their boundaries with boys, and their relationships with parents. Wiseman showed how girls of every background are profoundly influenced by their interactions with one another. Now, Wiseman has revised and updated her book for a new generation of girls, and explores: the different roles girls play in and outside of cliques; girls' power plays; how you can help your daughter better hold her own with the opposite sex; recognizing how your experiences impact the way you parent. With new insights about technology's impact on Girl World and enlivened with the experiences of girls, boys, and parents, the book that inspired the hit movie Mean Girls offers concrete strategies to help you empower your daughter.--From publisher description.

From Library Staff

Explains how parents can help their teenage daughters deal with cliques, gossip, substance abuse, boys and sex, and other challenges of adolescence, in a guide designed to help girls empower themselves during a tumultuous time of life.

This is a great book about the mean girl phenomenon. Really helps everyone understand that it's a jungle out there.
