Counter In those turbulent teenage years, girls need help making sense of the world. Dreams could be the key to figuring out what's happening in their lives--but only if they can properly decode the symbols, images, and actions that play out in their unconscious minds every night. Adult dream dictionaries may miss the mark, because they don't pay attention to what matters most to girls. For example, how many would include entries on "acne" or "allowances"? And some words have different implications for kids than grown-ups: "zero" might represent fears about a school project, for example. Now, there's a guide just for teenagers, with advice on how to tailor the interpretations to their own personal situation. Scary and threatening explanations are out, along with concepts and events that may not be relevant or easily grasped by young people. Instead, they'll find comforting guidance and a path to self-understanding. From "abandonment" and "abnormality" to "zipper" and "zoo," these wise and wonderful analyses will lead to some real girl power!
