Mary Pipher told us about the problems girls face in Reviving Ophelia; now in Girls Will Be Girls, JoAnn Deak gives us the solutions. In a work thats as relevant and important as Raising Cain, Deak offers a comprehensive road map to the many emotional and physical challenges girls of all ages face in today's changing world.
