Body DramaBook - 2008
From fashion magazines to taboo Web sites, curious girls have access to tons of old wives' tales about the female body - usually misinformation and harmful portrayals that lead to low self-esteem, self-destructive acts and even disturbing plastic surgery procedures. Here is a healing, reassuring response to damaging myths from former Miss Virgina, Nancy Redd. She addresses the issues that most girls are too ashamed to raise, from body hair to bras and from weight to acne.
