Secrets girls keep

August 19, 2012

Do You Know Someone with a Secret?

This book is for every girl with a secret, which pretty much means every one. Our secrets help us, hurt us, and sometimes even haunt us beyond high school. Secrets like:

I hate the way I look.
My boyfriend yells at me.
I’m cheating my way through chemistry.
I lost my virginity and regret it.
I sent a text message about my friend that wasn’t true.
I went to a party and didn’t tell my parents.
My mom drinks too much.

By revealing the personal stories, struggles, and secrets of other teen girls, Carrie Silver-Stock shows how to deal with everyday stresses by being self-reliant, not silent, and how to get real about what matters. With tips and advice for teens and by teens, you’ll learn how to:

• Navigate the ups and downs of dating • Make and keep good friends • Deal with school (the social scene and grades) • Handle family drama • Survive the cyber scene • And more . . .

Carrie Silver-Stock, M.S.W., L.C.S.W., received her masters in social work from Washington University in 1999, and a BA in sociology and World Perspectives from Principia College.

Silver-Stock founded Girls With Dreams to create a global movement where girls discover their power, passion and dreams. The mission is simple: girls will empower each other to build their best lives while learning how to take action and make a positive impact. Silver-Stock is passionate about inspiring teen girls to help them find their own way. As a former radio talk show host, speaker, social worker and life coach, she has advocated for young people for more than 15 years.

Silver-Stock loves staying active and spending time with her husband, two boys, and two dogs in St. Louis, Missouri. When she’s not encouraging teen girls to be comfortable in their own skin, she enjoys walking, boating, water-skiing, exercising and hanging out anywhere near a beach.
