Note: 
A potpourri of information that covers many aspects of Jewish life for preteen and teenage girls who ask, "Where do I fit in?" The ten chapters include such topics as friendship, parents, eating, body image, sexuality, tikun olam, and Jewish identity. Each chapter follows a given format that begins with a mitzvah statement from Jewish text. There are suggestions for discussion, activities, historical information, things to think about, a glossary, a bibliography and blank note pages in the back called "My Thoughts." Written for girls across the Jewish spectrum, it would be a good choice for a mother-daughter book group.
