Product Description:

Grade 7 Up–Former model turned teen magazine writer and editor turned media-awareness activist, Brashich has created an accessible guide that explores the relationship between self-esteem and pop culture. Taking her cues from authors such as Naomi Wolf, she challenges readers to feel good about themselves in spite of a culture that celebrates thinness and celebrity, and to see that beauty comes in many shapes and sizes. She shares personal experiences and incorporates quotes from teens, emphasising that while it's OK to enjoy the occasional celebrity magazine or episode of America's Next Top Model, it is important to realise that it is hype. Brashich poses questions to readers and recommends activities that will help others see through the marketing. A book that offers both support and validation.–Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA
