A poignant collection of original pieces selected from more than eight-hundred contributions, Ophelia Speaks culls writings from the hearts of girls nationwide, of various races, religions, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Ranging in age from twelve to eighteen, the voices here offer a provocative and piercingly real view on issues public and private, from body image to boys, politics to parents, school to sex. "There's not one false note in the brave adolescent voices we find in Ophelia Speaks. These girls honor, enrich and inform us by speaking the plain truth about their experience." -- Harriet Lerner, author of The Dance of Anger
