Gutsy Girls

Gutsy Girls

by Tina Schwager
Here is an affirmative collection of essays by 26 young women, who share how they have overcome a variety of odds to achieve their most cherished dreams, from sports to academics.

 

The book is divided into three sections: part one includes first-person essays; part two provides advice on how readers can set and achieve goals; and part three gives advice on physical fitness and self image, with information on self defense. An inspiring book for adolescent girls and an excellent resource for school counselors.
