Anita Naik, journalist, blogger and agony aunt for over 20 years, has probably heard it all, but this wealth of experience is put to good use in her positive and reassuring guide for young girls and teens. The influx of letters and emails from girls who felt under increasing pressure to look and behave in certain ways compelled her to create a book to show them how to be happier in their own skin, to be more confident and secure. Her approach is relaxed and straightforward, full of constructive advice on topics such as body image, eating disorders, friendships and relationships. She encourages girls to stop feeling pressurised to conform to notions of perfection, instead building self-esteem and finding a strong voice. Throughout the book the pace is broken up by the inclusion of quizzes, quotes and featured role models, all helping to keep it brisk and buzzy. A useful end section includes details of books, website and organisations that can offer further advice.
