Publishers Description

Do you ever wish you looked like someone else? Or that you could skip school because you feel self-conscious about your appearance? Do you think you're fat or ugly, even though everyone says you're fine? So many girls have these kinds of feelings from time to time. The important thing is to find ways of coping with them so they don't stop you from living your life. Picture Perfect will help you see how other girls who struggle with liking themselves have found solutions that really help them feel better about who they are--and their stories will show you ways to feel better too!

Jill Zimmerman Rutledge counsels girls with body-image issues and understands that many girls feel they need to be a 'perfect' all-around girl--including having a 'perfect' appearance. Read other girls' stories about feeling unattractive, worrying about food and weight, finding a unique style, dealing with mean girls--and much more. You'll see how they use positive messages or Special Statements, like 'A beautiful thing is never perfect' or 'I'm a creative chick, not a carbon copy,' to calm down their insecurities. Learn how to discover your own Special Statements and Action Plans so that you too can begin to see your own true beauty--and feel as picture perfect as you already are!

Practical Help for Young Girls  Jan 6, 2009
I have a daughter who struggles with her weight. It's been a sore subject in our home for a while now, and the cause of many tears (mine and hers). I was hoping Jill Zimmerman Rutledge would be able to impart some wisdom and shed a little light on our dilemma.

Rutledge does just that, addressing weight, fashion, and perfectionism. Written for a teen audience, each chapter shares the stories of three girls and how they're coping with that particular issue. Each girl created a special statement for themselves (such as my personal favorite, "Everyone gets a prize", which means every one has one truly great thing about her no matter what she may think), and developed a plan of action to get to her goal. Rutledge is careful not to push dieting, but a healthy lifestyle filled with good foods and exercise. She tackles different body types and unrealistic expectations. I was impressed with the straight-forward, practical approach that is both honest and encouraging.
Great for preteens and teens  Sep 10, 2008
If you have a preteen or teenage daughter who has ever voiced thoughts about negative body image, this may be the perfect book for her.

This book is a straight-forward, useful and fun read and might be the key to unlocking a strong sense of self in a girl you know!

Helping girls to appreciate and celebrate their strengths  Jun 2, 2008
Unfortunately, many girls and adult women in our society put way too much pressure on themselves and each other to look and be perfect. In her book, Picture Perfect, Jill Zimmerman Rutledge helps to empower tweens and teens by addressing body issues girls constantly struggle with and worry about--from weight, body type, and fashion concerns, to the cruelty of peers who tease or harass you for how you look. You'll find practical advice and tips other girls have used to help them appreciate and respect their bodies and learn that they are perfect by simply being who they are meant to be--themselves!
Superb Information for Teen Girls  Nov 29, 2007
Picture Perfect is great reading for teenage girls; very understandable and clearly written. It really focuses in on the issues young ladies face with their body image. Great scenarios and solutions are provided. Quizzes are included, as well as a wonderful inspirational pages! This book makes a great gift for a young, teen girl!!!
This book should be on every girls' book shelf  Nov 28, 2007
Jill Zimmerman Rutledge is as skillful with the world of teen girls as a composer is with sounds. She cares about every feeling, every heart ache, every joy, every concern of girls' lives. The coping strategies she suggests are geared to every personality type of teen girl. Reading the book feels as if Jill, the writer is a wise teen girl who is reaching out to other teen girls out there with compassion. I recommend this book for every teenager, grandparent/parent, the faculty/administrators of girls schools and just about anybody who deals with girls.
