An educator in leadership development for girls at Smith College offers a sobering look at the pressure they feel to get the best credentials and jobs, have perfect bodies, keep up with their peers sexually, and feel good about themselves. Delivering Rachel Simmons's moving research summaries and case studies, narrator Emily Durante breezes through all the phrasing challenges and adds fitting pathos to the author's message. She also captures the compassionate tone of the author's insights, drawn from interviews with 96 girls aged 15 to 24 and a variety of parents and parental figures. But the heart of this accessible audio is the author's advice, offered in the form of ingredients necessary for girls to feel confident, happy, resilient, and worthy just as they are. Written and delivered with memorable impact, this is a must-hear guide for anyone entrusted with the development of young women. T.W. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
