"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 whatto 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.

TODAY'S MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS HAVE IT ROUGH.
In a few short years, they go through an incredible number of biological and emotional changes, making this the most formative--and riskiest--time in their lives. Groups turn on each other, a trusted childhood friend can reveal secrets by sending a text message or updating a Facebook status, and deciding where to sit in the cafeteria can be a daily struggle. As any tween will tell you, life for a middle school girl can be summed up in one word: "drama."
Haley Kilpatrick's own turbulent middle school experience inspired Girl Talk, a nonprofit organization in which high school mentors offer a "just been there" perspective to tween girls, helping them build self-esteem and develop leadership skills. Here, Haley delivers the definitive guidebook, packed with anecdotes from real girls around the country, who offer their insight into:
Why her friends' approval is suddenly vitally important
Why she feels pressured to be perfect
Why she's no longer telling her parents everything
What three vital things adults can offer to the girls in their lives to downplay the drama
Filled with practical strategies from tweens and teen mentors to help adults understand what girls today are facing, "The Drama Years "is a must-read for anyone struggling to help girls navigate the often difficult transition into adolescence.
