Interesting that the commenters are split down the middle on their reviews: the adults -- counselors, parents, other adults -- think it's great. The teens themselves see the book for what it is -- patronizing and empty. The adult commenters are out of touch with the teens the book is supposed to help. The teens without exception rated the book very low, or just would not read it at all. I know what a good workbook is like, and this is not a good one. Although this one has the worksheets, it has no models or options for the user to employ to solve her problems with the bullies (or to stop herself from bullying others.) The reason I bought the book is my activism against bullying in senior and disabled public housing. The US State of Missouri just passed a tough new law against bullying in senior/disabled apartment buildings. I was bullied in kindergarten, then as an adult when I taught public school, I was helpless to stop the bullying of boys against other boys outside school hours. The victims would come to me daily and say that another boy/s had beaten them up on the way home from school, and the school systems had a policy that "off school grounds" they were not responsible. These were the early 1960s; now, schools are trying to do something about internet bullying/harassment. Kindergartners who bully, elementary school, middle school, high school, college bullies -- they grow up and just get better at what they do to other people. They eventually end up in senior housing. Here's a great movie - "A Girl Like Her" which grippingly shows what it's like to be the victim of a bully girl. I hope to find a workbook that's as good as the movie, although the movie does not have solutions, either.

Not reccomended24 December 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
My mom bought this workbook for me, along with a few others. Most are wonderful in this series, but I was maybe 15 when my mom bought it for me. It's written a very cheesy, childish prospective. I couldn't deal with the topic at all. It seemed to rely a lot on self esteem which really bugged me. I guess it could help some girls but I wouldn't recommend it at all.
