Girls Write about Bullies, Cliques, Popularity, and Jealousy
Add to Wish List
The national bestseller Odd Girl Out exposed a hidden
culture of cruelty that had always been quietly endured by
American girls. As Rachel Simmons toured the country, these
girls found their voices and spoke to her about their pain.
They wanted to talk-and they weren't the only ones.
Mothers, teachers, counselors, young professional women,
even fathers, came to Rachel with heart-wrenching personal
stories that could no longer be kept secret.
Here, Rachel creates a safe place for girls to talk, rant,
sound off, and find each other. The result is a collection
of wonderful accounts of the inner lives of adolescent
girls. Candid and disarming, creative and expressive, and
always exceptionally self-aware, these poems, songs,
confessions, and essays form a journal of American
girlhood. They show us how deeply cruelty flows and how
strongly these girls want to change.
Odd Girl Out helped girls find their voices; Odd Girl
Speaks Out helps them tell their stories.
