I'm excited for Violet to be in such awesome company! Thanks!

This is great. A really good non fiction book can be invaluable. I've read Girlforce and highly recommend it to any teen young lady and to the mothers of teens. We all remember how rough those teen years were and Nikki shares great information to help you get through the teen years and to thrive.

I would also suggest Hot Girl by Dream Jordan. I could see Kendra and Kate from, Hot Girl being friends. Thought they had a lot im common besides both having names that begin with K and living in boroughs that start with B
The Bronx - Kendra
Brooklyn - Kate

Nikki Leigh: I'll be posting about GirlForce here at the rgz blog later this month, with some quiz results from the postergirlz and readergirlz divas.

Doret: Thanks for the tip! I've just requested that book from the library.

Absolutely, Nikki! Invaluable.

Doret said...

Very cool. Its a great book

Doret: I just finished reading Hot Girl by Dream Jordan. You are right on the money! What a good book. I completely agree that this book is a perfect recommendation alongside Kendra, and that the leading ladies from the two books would buddy up. Thank you so much for the recommendation!
