Note: 
Episodes from the teenage years of women in the Book of Genesis are found in this collection of modern midrash for girls. Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Rebecca, Rachel, Leah, Dinah, Tamar, and Asenath are included, each the subject of a story that deals primarily with their "first loves, blossoming spirituality, and developing bodies and identities." The author has provided a detailed discussion guide and that will help to fulfill the book's pedagogical purpose in a mother-daughter book club, or as part of the curriculum of a pre- or post- Bat Mitzvah class.
