Edited by Norine G. Johnson, Michael C. Roberts, & Judith Worell. Washington, DC: American Psychological Association, 1999, 464 pp. $39.95 (hardback); $29.95 (paper).

The picture they paint tends to be an especially bleak one for girls who face additional problems associated with being female (e.g., eating disorders, pregnancy, diminishing self-concepts, dating violence, and sexual assault). It is onto this canvas that Norine G. Johnson, Michael C.
