The Girl is in fifth grade, she’s in love with the new boy in school, she hates it when her parents fight, and she’s here to tell us The Truth

The Truth is 115 pages of observations told from the perspective of a young girl on the verge of adolescence.  She isn’t a girl growing up in the 21st century, she is a girl of a past generation, but she still talks about many things young girls today can relate to – boys, school, parents, siblings, friends, teachers, growing up. 

This is also a wonderful book for the parents of girls.  Sometimes it’s hard for adults to remember what childhood feels like, this book helps bring some of that back, and helps build understanding across the generations.

  3. Thanks for the wonderful review. I really want parents to have a way to look backwards to times and feelings they have now blocked or forgotten. And to remember lots of good times in the process. And I want girls (and boys) to see that so many feelings and ideas and dreams and hopes are universal. Thanks for augmenting what I’m trying to say! All my best, Dr Barbara Becker Holstein
