An updated, indispensable guide to empowerment and self-discovery for teens.
While fashion magazines, television programs, and websites emphasize the superficial and foster insecurities, Sarah Stillman directs teen girls to a healthy place where a strong sense of self and direction take center stage. Originally written when the author was just sixteen, Soul Searching has been fully updated and expanded to address the concerns of today’s teens, bringing girl power to the printed page by offering young women a clear path to self-discovery and empowerment. Through fun quizzes, insightful exercises, and provocative statistics, Stillman guides young women through the complex maze between adolescence and adulthood.
Featuring updated sections on safe cell-phone use, social media, health, and gender, as well as including updated resources throughout, Soul Searching is a must-read for teenage girls.
Active in the international global justice movement, she has worked with migrant factory workers in southern China, refugees in rural Guatemala, and HIV/AIDS patients in Thailand.
In 2008, she was embedded with the 116th Military Police Company in Iraq as a foreign correspondent for "Truthdig", following which New York University named her the inaugural recipient of The Reporting Award and her article about it was selected for publication in the "New Yorker" in 2011. Stillman currently works as a fellow at Yale's Morse College, where she co-teaches a course on the Iraq war with a U.S. Army captain.
