Summary
There's a new type of teenage girl growing up in America today, and she is having a profound and beneficial influence on society. That's the conclusion of child and adolescent psychologist Kindlon, who supports his startling discoveries about the new "alpha girl" with groundbreaking research, including profiles, case studies, questionnaires and more. Kindlon provides us with an in-depth portrait of the alpha girl--a born leader who is ready to explode into adulthood and make her mark on the world and, by her example, serve as an inspiration for women everywhere. He presents innovative, newsworthy material that directly contradicts the thesis of Reviving Ophelia; looks at the many ways in which the accomplishments of the alpha girl's mother have helped to liberate her daughter; and examines the dramatically different relationship between father and daughter today--and how it can transform a girl's psychological makeup, identity, and sense of self.--From publisher description
