Gr 6 Up–This new installment in the “Instant Help Solutions” series focuses on 10 tips for girls to overcome anxiety. Most teens have experienced anxiety at one point or another, but for 25 percent of readers, this anxiety can be extremely debilitating. Hemmen offers strategies that girls can apply in daily life. The text shows readers how to slay negative self-talk, bullies, and other challenges. Hemmen acknowledges self-care as a right, not a privilege, and details how readers can get comfortable with the uncomfortable, such as navigating anxiety in social situations. This resource serves as a suitable general self-help text. Readers will take comfort in knowing that anxiety can happen to anyone and that they are not alone—good coping skills and practical techniques can help overcome stress and anxious feelings.
VERDICT Not necessarily a text that teens would independently select from the library shelves, but it could be well used as a desk copy for middle and high school counselors.
