GirlForce by Nikki Goldstein

GirlForce by Nikki Goldstein is this month's non-fiction recommended read for readergirlz. Here's a little bit about the book as I described it in my interview with the author: GirlForce encourages teen girls to be healthy: to find a healthy balance between school, work, family, and friends; to live well by eating healthful foods, exercising, resting, and reducing stress; to be self-confident and self-aware, each to a healthy degree.

I passed out copies of GirlForce to some of the high school girls that frequent my store. Some of us took the quizzes together. Sometimes, Megan and I would have the same three or four answers in a row, including the (not-given) option of "all of the above," which would make us completely crack up. Katie and I took the self-esteem quiz at the same time. Not only did we both pass on question #2, but our total sums were only one point apart.

I spoke to each of the girls about GirlForce at length. We discussed their quiz results and what they thought of the book and the concepts and ideas it presented and introduced to them.

I also asked the readergirlz divas and the postergirlz to take the body type quiz at the GirlForce website and we discovered each person's "type" element, Earth, Fire, or Air. Here are our results:

readergirlz divas
Lorie Ann Grover: Air
Melissa Walker: Fire
Holly Cupala: Fire
Dia Calhoun: Air. "I don't think this fits me, because I love routine."

rgz media specialist
Martha Brockenbrough: Fire

rgz Seattle Host
Liz Gallagher: She scored equally across all three elements. "I think I'm a natural Earth, but am gaining some of the more active tendancies of the others."

Little Willow: Fire
Miss Erin: "All of the above!" She scored equally across all three elements. "From the descriptions, though, I'd call myself Fire."
HipWriterMama: Earth
Jackie: Earth
Shelf Elf: She scored equally across all three elements. "I think I'm more Air than anything else."

Bookstore Girls
Megan: Fire, Air
Doyin: Fire
Christina: Earth
Katie: Fire

Take the body type quiz and then leave a comment below with your quiz results.

Check out the book for other quizzes and, of course, for the text itself!
