`Plenty of good, practical advice here...Your Daughter covers a lot of ground with insight and good sense...' The Times Education Supplement `As the largest non-formal, educational organisation for girls and young women in the UK we know a thing or two about girls and this book certainly reflects our insight into the huge range of influences and emotions affecting today's girls. Your Daughter is a great resource for adults to understand the different and sometimes difficult paths that young women have to navigate as they grow up.'
