Well, today is the day that Good Girls Don’t Get Fat, the non-fiction book written by Dr. Robyn Silverman (and me!) about the pressures young girls face with regard to body image, is available in book stores and from book sellers everywhere. Yay!
Last night, several attendees of my Get Published seminar approached me to ask about Good Girls (I brought a copy with me). One woman asked if it was a good resource for parents of boys, since the book says it is written for “parents, guardians, families, teachers, counselors and anyone else who works with or cares about your young women.” I told her yes, that even though the book is girl-specific, the advice that Dr. Robyn offers parents can be applied to boys as well. It’s good stuff for anyone, really. In other words, you know what I’ll be giving for Christmas this year.
