Overview

Hayden Panettiere, Mischa Barton, Ellen Page - everyone's going green these days, but saving the environment is a large task for anyone to take on, especially a teenager. Yet the everyday green girls profiled here have a passion - to do just that. They've stepped up, taken the initiative, and made their voices heard, and in doing so, they have helped to effect change - from creating a cosmetics line free of toxic chemicals to trying to conquer global warming to encouraging the use of wind power. Filled with stories from real girls who made a difference, plus lots of celebrity green girls who are doing their part to help out, "Girls Gone Green" gives girls everywhere the inspiration to do something to help their world. It doesn't matter how small the change is - it only matters that you make the effort to bring about that change.

Likely to motivate conscientious readers, this handbook profiles real-life teens who have embraced environmental causes, along with a few star contributors (Hayden Panettiere writes the foreword). Each teen narrates her own section: one girl's concern over Bronx River pollution inspired her work, while another took lessons she learned about recycling from summers on Bowen Island in Canada to her life in Los Angeles: “It's important to think of the world as just one tiny island, where every action we take has consequences.” Ages 10–up. (Mar.)
