I Am More Than Just a Girl. Empowered. Informed. Equal. by Leah Oviedo
Though the book is recommended for ages 14-21, I would say ages 12 and up would be appropriate. The book does have some parts about sexual abuse that are probably not suitable for audiences younger than 12. It also touches on sexual orientation, suicidal thoughts, and eating disorders. But one of the (many) great things about I Am More Than Just a Girl is that is provides a list of hotlines for young women who my be dealing with any of the aforementioned subjects.
This books is an excellent confidence booster and even reminded me of what makes me special and why I -and all the other women in the world - deserve to be treated as such.
