Still don't know about the Girl Guide? Here is some of the early feedback on the book:

  • "The Girl Guide is a game-changer and should be in every girl's backpack." ~ Ali Cross, author of the Desolation series
  • "The perfect remedy for a world obsessed with airbrushed perfection. A must read for every girl who has ever wondered what it means to be strong. Girls who can find beauty and strength within should be--and can be--the new normal, and The Girls' Guide is there to show the way." ~ Danyelle Leafty, author of The Fairy Godmother Dilemma series
  •  "I grew up on "Chicken Soup For the ____ Soul" books... This is kinda that "type" of book but more modern, and to me, more useful." ~ Kayla Shirley, Blogger
This book is so important to me and I LOVE the reactions!


I am even more thrilled to  share an excerpt from the book today. Click here to read a sample.  You'll not only see the content, but the stunning interiors Prufrock did for me!!!
