|display_description||Today's middle school girls have it rough. In a few short years, girls go through an incredible number of biological and emotional changes, making it the most formative-and risky-time in their lives. Groups form and turn on each other, childhood friends can reveal trusted secrets just by sending a text message or updating a Facebook status, and deciding where to sit in the cafeteria can be a daily struggle. As any tween will tell you, life for a middle school girl can be summed up in one word: drama. Haley Kilpatrick's own turbulent middle school experience inspired Girl Talk, a nonprofit organization in which high school mentors offer a "just been there" perspective to tween girls, helping them build self-esteem and develop leadership skills. Here, Haley delivers the definitive guidebook for parents, teachers and anyone who works with middle school girls. Written from the trenches, The Drama Years is packed with anecdotes from real girls around the country and filled with practical strategies from tweens and teen mentors to help adults understand what girls today are facing; a must-read for anyone struggling to help girls navigate the difficult transition into adolescence.|
