Synopsis

Girl World by Theresa Cheung

It's tough out there in Girl World. One minute you're in the gang, the next you're out...your best friend has stopped talking to you for no apparent reason...you find out that someone has been spreading nasty rumours about you...a girl is making your life a misery by picking on you...and everyone seems to be so much cooler and confident than you. What's a girl to do? Girl World lets you into the secret and complicated world of girls and their friendships. It shows you how you can survive the scary girl, the snob, the gossip, the joker and the backstabber. Packed with straightforward and sensible advice Girl World will help girls deal with everyday situations and gain real confidence. It makes sense of the sometimes bewildering and unpredictable behaviour of girls and gives the reader the courage to stand up for themselves and hold their head high. As a former secondary school teacher, the author, Theresa Cheung, has seen for herself just how powerful girls' friendships and cliques are - shaping what they wear and say, how they feel about school, how they respond to boys and how they feel about themselves. This is an absolute must for girls everywhere!

Reviews
