Though anxiety has risen among young people overall, recent research studies confirm that it has skyrocketed in girls since the turn of the century. So what's to blame? And how can we help these girls? In the same engaging, anecdotal style and reassuring tone that won over thousands of readers of her first book, Untangled, clinical psychologist Lisa Damour starts by examining the science of stress and anxiety, then turns to the many facets of girls' lives where stress hits them hard: the parental expectations they face at home, pressures at school, social anxiety among their peers, and on social media. Exploring the multiple layers of girls' lives, Damour shows us the critical steps we can take to shield them from the toxic stress to which both our culture and also we, as their caregivers, subject them. Readers familiar with Damour from Untangled or from her New York Times journalism will be drawn to this important new contribution to understanding and supporting today's girls - and tomorrow's young women.

I really cannot recommend this book highly enough. It was easy to understand, kept me hooked and has already been passed around to several friends and colleagues. -- Beth Dawson * Times Educational Supplement * Damour offers a hopeful, helpful new way for parents to talk about-and with-teenage girls... Parents will want this book on their shelves, next to established classics of the genre. * Publishers Weekly (on UNTANGLED) * a welcome new resource * The Boston Globe (on UNTANGLED) * [Untangled] is the most down-to-earth, readable parenting book I've come across in a long time. * The Washington Post *
