The Myth of the Perfect Girl: Helping Our Daughters Find Authentic Success and Happiness in School and Life

"As our society grapples with who we want and need females and males to grow up to be, it is no surprise that our girls and boys are confused about what is expected of them. The Myth of the Perfect Girl dives deep into how this is unnerving our girls. A must read for all parents, educators, psychologists and girls themselves." —Dr. Louann Brizendine, Founder/Director UCSF Women's Mood and Hormone Clinic, and author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain

"Whether you're the parent of an adolescent girl or a savvy young woman yourself, the insights in this book could just change your outlook — and make the turbulent teen years a little less of a pressure-cooker. Ana Homayoun is the counselor, expert, and friend every parent — and girl — needs."—Michele Borba, Ed.D., author of The Big Book of Parenting Solutions
