Summary
  • "An urgently needed and insightful guidebook for parents and teachers struggling to help girls navigate the often-difficult transition into adolescence by the founder of Girl Talk.It has never been easy to be a middle school girl. In the few short years between grade school and high school, girls go through an incredible number of physical and mental changes, making this the most formative--and precarious--time in their lives. Groups form and turn on each other; classmates whisper about who's saying what to whom; childhood friends tell trusted secrets; and just deciding where to sit in the lunchroom can be a daily struggle. Then there's the biological wave of changes--all the growth spurts, new curves, and new hormones--and suddenly, there are more grown-up things to worry about like dealing with guys and sexuality. All the while, they're constantly bombarded by contradictory and confusing messages from society and the media--not to mention the world of video chat, texting, Facebook, and Twitter. In 2002, when she was only fifteen, Haley Kilpatrick created Girl Talk, a nonprofit organization of more than 35,000 members dedicated to helping girls deal with these issues. The Drama Years is packed with the voices of tweens, who share their experiences, anecdotes, and advice on everything from stress to body image to getting along with parents. This is a survival guide written from the trenches, packed with real life examples and practical strategies, to help parents and daughters survive The Drama Years"--
  • "The Drama Years is the definitive guide to the pressures that middle school girls experience every day"--
