Journalist Rachel Simmons sheds light on destructive patterns that need our attention. With advice for girls, parents, teachers, and even school administrators, Odd Girl Out is a groundbreaking work that every woman will agree is long overdue.
"Bolstered with numerous revealing anecdotes and quotes, Odd Girl Out does an excellent job of articulating to adults exactly the pain and subtle warfare that many teen girls experience, and Simmons offers thoughtful motivations for both bullies and the parents who are reluctant to rein them in. She also offers admirable, groundbreaking insight into an all-too-common issue and will be invaluable to any adult struggling to help a girl get through her teens." (Booklist)

Compelling and informative
Every mother of a girl should read this book. My 8 year old daughter is in the early stage of struggling with these very issues. This is a book that raises your level of awareness and will hopefully leave you better equipped to help your daughter handle the ups and downs of her social world.

I've tried several times to write a review for this book, but was unable to complete one until now, because of the emotion that overwhelms me. I was the odd girl out through my high school years and couldn't speak of it at home, for the attitude was, "well, what did you do to deserve it?"
Every mother of a daughter and every teacher of girls needs to read this book and recognize the silent suffering of the girls in their care. Just because there are no physical bruises doesn't mean there's no damage done. Please let's acknowledge and treat this area of "silent aggression" for the sake of our daughters, sisters and girls everywhere.
