My Review: 
Ok lets face it.  If we had the chance to go back to school now I don't know many people who would take that chance.  So this guide will really come in handy for those girls who are entering both middle school and high school!

This book was so cute.  When I first grabbed it I thought it was going to be a story about a girl finding her place in the world.  Well was I ever surprised to find it is a workbook to help you as the teen to find your place in the world!  It is so cute!  I will deff be buying a few finished copies for my girls.  I really want to thank both Netgalley and Sourcebook as well as the author (HIIII) for sending me this review copy!  I think ever teen girl should get a few copies of this for their middle school and high school years it will give them something to look back on and help them remember what they really felt like.
