Empowering, inspiring and straight-talking, this is the book that is every teenage girl's best friend.
The butterfly is a symbol of transformation. It reminds us that we are all able to change. We can make choices and we are in control. We can choose to replace the messages that shout 'You are not enough' - not hot enough, thin enough, talented enough, popular enough - every time we open a magazine, watch a music video or go into a clothes store.
The Girl with the Butterfly Tattoo encourages girls to question the limiting messages advertisers, the media and our culture keep pushing: that a girl's greatest worth is her looks, and beauty comes in only one size and shape. It inspires and empowers girls to find their strength and be true to their own hearts and minds.
This book is for you if:
* You're tired of having days when everything just seems to make you feel 'less' - less beautiful, less powerful, less happy, less in control. * You've ever been frozen out by a friend and it has wrecked your whole day. * You, or a friend, are trying to deal with something major - binge-drinking, drugs, anorexia or bulimia, self-harm, depression. * You'd prefer to have your own style, not dress head-to-toe in the same labels as everyone else. * You have piles of homework and want to find the best way to study that suits you. * You'd like some tips on creating the future you want after school
'Finally a book for teenage girls that does not patronise or attempt to police them! The Girl with the Butterfly Tattoo empowers teen girls to make their own choices.' -- Nina Funnell, writer, women's rights advocate and recipient of Australian Human Rights Commission Community (Individual) Award, 2010
