“Insightful and inclusive… These girls' heartfelt, hopeful, and inspiring narratives will resonate with teenage girls everywhere.” – Booklist
“Full of pictures and the unique voices of teenage girls in a variety of situations and cultures, this book provides a snapshot of teens’ lives around the world.” –SchoolLibrary Journal
“This book is beautiful and such a fabulous look at teens around the world. What makes it special is how much context is given to the girls’ lives, paired with the girls sharing their daily lives in their own words. It’ll be full color and the pictures and design of this are going to only make it more beautiful.” – Kelly Jensen, Book Riot
“To see a day or two in the life of so many personalities in so many situations and settings is really a delight. It’s an incredible collaboration and is a great way to amplify the voices of young people and get those words out to other young people who can benefit from seeing pieces of themselves on the page. This is a book that will speak to many readers and could be both inspirational and comforting.” – Rich in Color
“An inviting and appealing collection.” – Kirkus Reviews
