Seamlessly integrating consciousness and cool, this is a modern girl's guide to her inner world. Author Kidada Jones acts as a smart, sassy, and very hip older-sister guide to tweens. She understands the challenges they face -- whether mainstream, rebel, tomboy, edgy, or girly -- and offers dozens of ways to be themselves and navigate the world without losing sight of what's important. Q&As, ceremonies, crafts, and even recipes remind, affirm, and inspire. Readers learn how to connect with their heart in happy or difficult moments, resist bullying, clarify their wishes and use affirmations, build self-esteem, and breathe to calm and connect. The book the author wishes she'd had when she was young, this is a unique introduction to mind, body, and spirit consciousness for young girls and the grown-up girls -- and boys -- who care about their well-being.
