A few years ago—maybe even a few months ago—you did whatever you enjoyed without even thinking about the fact that you were a GIRL. But now you might be getting the message that there are things girls can and cannot do. Don't allow yourself to get pushed to the sidelines. Life is not a spectator sport!
Girls around the country have shared their ideas with Judith Harlan about how to deal with people who make you feel like you can't or shouldn't follow your dream (or run for class president or take physics or play roller hockey). Covering the topics of friends, boys, fun, sports, fashion, school, and more, Girl Talk will inspire you to make your world a better, more fun, and more fair place. Here—finally—you get smart comebacks to annoying comments: "You think like a girl!" ("Thank you. Study hard and you can do it, too.") And in between all the girl talk, dozens of Debbie Palen's hilarious illustrations will have you in hysterics.
