"For preteens confused by fashion and style, this informative guide will help introduce some basic concepts with a healthy dose of encouragement and self-discovery.
"Jackie Walker and Pamela Dittmer McKuen take the role of fashion and the societal pressure on girls to achieve an idealistic image and treat it as a way to self-empowerment and respect for others."
