Girlhood: Teens Around the World in Their Own Voices

Author(s): Masuma Ahuja

Mental / Emotions

What do the lives of teenage girls look like in Cambodia and Kenya, in Mongolia and the Midwest? What do they worry about and dream of? What happens on an ordinary day? All Around The World, girls are going to school, working, creating, living as sisters, daughters, friends. But what do we really know about their day-to-day lives-their surprising similarities and fascinating differences? In Girlhood: Teens around the World in Their Own Voices, thirty teens from twenty-seven countries share their own stories of growing up, through diary entries and photographs. You'll meet Claudie in Vanuatu, who loves to surf; Naya, in Germany, whose family fled Syria when she was thirteen; Emma, in Ireland, who is a Shawn Mendes superfan; Jocelyne, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, who dreams of becoming a nurse; and Sattigul, in Mongolia, who moves with the seasons with her nomadic family-and the wild eagle they've trained. From the Americas to Europe to Africa to Asia to the South Pacific, Girlhood is a portrait of ordinary girlhood around the world, and of the world, as seen through girls' eyes. Book jacket.
