From an adult perspective it may seem like a rite of passage, but for a preteen or adolescent girl it can seem like the end of the world. We're talking about being shunned by the 'in crowd' and banished to the outskirts of a clique. To make it worse, the Internet and other new technologies have opened up a whole new venue for bullying. Coping with Cliques helps girls overcome feelings of isolation and rejection and develop the self-esteem that will make being left out of a clique seem not so tragic after all. It gives them practical skills for dealing with cyber- and real-life bullying, and shows them how to keep bullying, put-downs, and gossip from poisoning their sense of self. This book is appropriate for kids between the ages of six and twelve.
