Girl in the Mirror teaches mothers everywhere that their daughters' adolescence isn't a time to be gotten through or survived, but rather a tremendous opportunity to foster social, emotional, and intellectual growth, as well as forge new connections between mothers and daughters. Drawing on the latest research and interviews with experts in different fields, the book sheds new light on the journey that is adolescence, the crucial interaction between mother and daughter, and the ways in which our own parenting skills must evolve as our daughters move into a new stage of their life.

A recognized authority in the field of women's health, Dr. Nancy Snyderman tackles some of the often-repeated myths that surround adolescence, along with practical wisdom and sound advice. Filled with stories drawn from the authors' own experience mothering adolescent girls and from the experiences of women around the country, Girl in the Mirror is a bold and reassuring vision.

Review:

Mother, know thyself--especially mothers of daughters, for as Nancy L. Snyderman, M.D., and Peg Streep so eloquently convey in Girl in the Mirror, self-aware mothers stand a much greater chance of helping their daughters become happier, more fulfilled women. But there's a catch: oftentimes, a girl's volatile journey through puberty occurs during her mother's midlife--another physically and emotionally challenging stage of womanhood. Fusing an impressive array of research findings, expert interviews, quotations from classic texts on teens, and journal entries from regular moms (and a few dads), Snyderman and Streep clear a safe path through the brambles and muck commonly associated with "surviving" adolescence.

Optimism, encouragement, and empathy fill every page of this thoughtfully compiled text. Whether they're unraveling a deceptively complex topic such as girls' friendships (from childhood "best friends" to teenage sexual partners), or reporting hard data on tough issues (chronic disorders, drug abuse, violence), Snyderman and Streep never buy in to "inevitable" scenarios. Rather, they offer practical methods to help mothers nurture a pattern of appropriate openness, trust, and respect with their maturing daughters. Excellent tools for assessing one's current perceptions, handling tough situations, and gracefully managing change add further substance to this marvelous resource. --Liane Thomas
