I loved this book! Who doesn’t have an attitude at this age? It’s like looking in a mirror and seeing how I used to act. Even Mom  loved the book and could identify with Vicky’s mother. This story is so realistic and true to life! I highly recommend this novel to mothers and daughters everywhere. Read it together. It’s a great bonding experience.

Jam-packed with emotional conflict, trials and tribulations, romance and humor, this winner of 8 literary awards follows outspoken, materialistic 17-year-old Victoria Benson on her rocky road to adulthood as she struggles with financial setbacks, bullying, first love, idealism, loss and forgiveness along the way.

Raising children has never been easy… And guiding them through adolescence in our tumultuous modern world? Maddening! Today’s teens want entertainment! What they need, however, is a little bit of guidance, especially given the challenges of the current US economy. Written for young adults, ages 15 and up, and their parents, The Attitude Girl is an inspirational, award-winning timely book that gives them both…
