My Review:  
As a mother of a teenage daughter and someone who has always struggled with anxiety I absolutely loved this book. It's broken down in terms that teens can easily understand and filled with tons of real life examples. There are so many useful tip and tricks to help manage and avoid anxiety.  There are also sections that prompt the reader to think and write about their anxiety.  I can see where this will be extremely helpful to teen girls with anxiety. There were even a few things I found myself wanting to try out to help reduce my anxiety as well. I think this book is a must read for teen girls or anyone who suffers from anxiety.
