    Introducing The Girlz Of Galstanberry

    in Lifestyle

    A refreshing alternative to books about tween vampires, liars, and sensuous love; characters from this series experience reaction to real-life situations, exposure to new and different cultures, and most importantly, the process of learning and accepting who they are. Throughout its dynamic personalities, GG explores an environment of real middle school-issues allowing readers to relate to the characters' journey and share in this celebration of maturation.

    GG tells girls that is okay to still play with dolls, laugh at something funny and not someone's misfortune, and that it is okay to be loyal to yourself.  GG leaves its impression on the reader, showing girls all over that we should celebrate our differences. In a world where the media constantly barrages middle-school-aged girls with adult issues, GG shares a different prospective: there is no rush to grow up, enjoy your middle-school years, and most importantly, embrace and celebrate who you are!~http://www.galstanberrygirlz.com/
