Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls by Rachel Simmons (Harcourt) is a wakeup call to all of us who care deeply about girls' development. Simmons has uncovered a hidden world of aggression that unfolds behind adults' backs.

Dirty looks and taunting notes are just a few examples of girl bullying that girls and women have long suffered through silently and painfully. With this book Rachel Simmons elevated the nation's consciousness and has shown millions of girls, parents, counselors, and teachers how to deal with this devastating problem. Poised to reach a wider audience in paperback, including the teenagers who are its subject, Odd Girl Out puts the spotlight on this issue, using real-life examples from both the perspective of the victim and of the bully.
