We are currently gearing up for our third virtual book group and we are SO excited!
This group’s title is Everything Beautiful Is Not Ruined by Danielle Younge-Ullman.
This is the story of a girl who must survive an extreme wilderness experience to prove to her mother that she has the strength to pursue her dreams.
Note to Parents and Readers: This book is highly recommended and is consistent with the Female Strong Mission of building confidence in middle and high school girls. We wanted this book group to address themes that arise in everyday life for our girls so that they can talk and learn together about how to process and rise above. The main character is in high school and at the Wilderness Camp she is presented with themes that are certainly present for girls: drug use, teenage pregnancy, petty theft and suicide.

Some takeaways and quotes the girls/parents of our recent book clubs:
“Having faith and trusting yourself”
“Paving your own path and not letting what other people say or think get to you”
“Being yourself no matter what”
“Very glad to have found you. My daughter would have never gotten this resource so early with your book club. And I’m honestly seeing her change in confidence… guess it’s because now she has more tools to access and clarify ideas in her head.”
We are thrilled to have Shelby Wenner from the Chicago Booth School of Business championing this book group.
October 15th, 2020 – November 19th, 2020 5 pm – 6 pm CST. Meets weekly on Thursdays.
