They need a role model and a book to show them they're okay just the way they are!"Girls Inc. Presents: You're Amazing!" is a guide for girls between the ages of 9 and 12 to help them deal with the amount of pressure they endure to be 'perfect'. Claire Mysko draws on anecdotes from girls to illustrate the stress to receive outstanding grades, excel at music and other creative pursuits, have the popular boyfriend and friends, and look perfect.In a lively, age - appropriate tone, Mysko offers advice and wisdom from successful teens and young women on how to survive the pressures of adolescence - and thrive.
