Growing up for preteens is tough, but having a secret diary can help. That’s what the unnamed sixth-grade narrator of The Truth: Diary of a Gutsy Tween discovers. Recording her toughest questions and most intimate thoughts, the narrator’s musings will help preteens address real-life problems, questions, and emotions. She will help other girls answer questions like: How do you deal with a bully? A teacher who says you’ve asked a “silly” question? Or when parents fight? Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein covers a spectrum of usual tween troubles girls will relate to, teaching them how to handle difficult situations and how to carry the best part of themselves into adulthood.
A great book for mothers and daughters to read together, The Truth will help improve communication, understanding, and self-esteem for young girls on the cusp of becoming a teenager.
