Raising children has never been easy… And guiding them through adolescence in our tumultuous modern world? Maddening! Today's teens want entertainment! What they need, however, is a little bit of guidance, especially given the challenges of the current US economy. Written for young adults, ages 15 and up, and their parents, The Attitude Girl is an inspirational, award-winning timely book that gives them both…

Everyone thinks Vicky has an attitude problem, but in her eyes, she's simply being realistic and honest about what she thinks and feels. If people can't handle it, well… it's their problem!

The novel recounts a young woman's coming of age, with a little bit of sassiness and a lot of heart. Jam-packed with emotional conflict, trials & tribulations, romance and humor, this compelling winner of 8 literary awards follows outspoken, materialistic 17-year-old Victoria Benson on her rocky road to adulthood as she struggles with financial setbacks, idealism, loss and forgiveness along the way.

Selected as the Best Young Adult Novel of the Year by 2010 Premier Book Awards, The Attitude Girl also placed as a Finalist of the 2010 National Indie Excellence Awards, was named a First-place Winner at the 2009 London Book Festival in the Young Adult/Teenage category and in the Arizona Authors Association Annual Literary Awards contest (Novels), and additionally received four Honorable Mentions in 2009/2010 literary competitions.

My Review:

This past Monday I spotlighted Mila as one of my Spotlight on Mommy Monday posts.  If you missed my interview with her, click here now to read it.

4.5 stars out of 5

I wish this book was around when I was growing up.  It would have helped with many of life's obstacles a teen girl goes through.  I enjoyed reading this book and following Vicky as she goes through these situations, and watch as she triumphs and becomes a stronger and more compassionate young woman. I will definitely be sharing this book with my daughter, Savannah, once she gets older.  This book reminds me of the Ophilia book I read as a teen, and helped me grin and bear the teenage years.

If you have a teenage daughter, or soon to be teenager, why not pick up this book and share it with your daughter.  It will help them to see that they are not the only one's who go through tough situations as a teen.  They will be comforted in knowing that other teen girls go through similar situations, and these obstacles only make you stronger.  What a positive book for young girls!  Now, transitioning into young adulthood can be a little easier with the help of Mila's book, Attitude Girl.
