    “Curse of the Good Girl” was soooooooo accurate to my experiences of working with girls in a middle school. Loved, loved, loved the problem-solving strategies offered!! Thank you Rachel Simmons! I hope I can send my daughter to the Summer Camp run by GLI one day. She’s only 3 months old right now.
