More of the Best: Stories for Girls

Edited by: N. Gretchen Greiner

First line: It takes all kinds of girls to make a book of stories for girls.

Why you should read this book: Take a whitewashed journey back to 1978, when girls could study genetics while dealing with timeless issues like boys, death, divorce, and popularity. In eleven stories, girls take their own journeys to awareness and self-understanding, learning to water ski, practicing voodoo, and helping their best friends elope. A somewhat dated but still entertaining collection.

Why you shouldn't read this book: The issues you're dealing with are a little more complicated than a bossy cousin telling you what to wear to her party.
