Summary

Summary

Insightful, heartfelt, and hopeful,Surviving Opheliais a must-read for any mother of a teenage daughter who has ever felt disappointed, alone, or afraid.

Raising a teenage girl can be overwhelming for the most important female figure in her life: her mother. From handling the often delicate situations surrounding academic performance, athletics, friendships, sexual activity, and drug and alcohol experimentation to instilling a healthy body image and providing a strong role model, mothers often feel alone in their struggle to cope with all that they must do for their daughters.

To provide the community that these women so desperately crave, Cheryl Dellasega has writtenSurviving Ophelia,a book of profound wisdom and compassion. Dellasega's own story of raising her teenage daughters is punctuated by the collective experience of hundreds of other mothers from all walks of life who have been there, in the trenches, experiencing and chronicling the daily joys and trials of raising their teenage girls.

Editorial Reviews

“Thank you [Cheryl Dellasega] for showing mothers everywhere that we are not alone in our struggle to help our daughters. . . Surviving Ophelia is mesmerizing and the truth of its stories resonates.” Sue Wellman, President, The Ophelia Project
“This courageous book offers clear insight and direction to mothers struggling with how to help their daughters restore their future while they reclaim their own lives.” Carol Maxym, co-author of Teens in Turmoil
“[The selections] share a raw immediacy…there are lessons here that will help every mother dealing with an adolescent daughter.” Publishers Weekly
“By describing her own heartbreaking experience and compiling the stories and poems of hundreds of mothers across the country, Dellasega paints a picture of lost teenage girls and their mothers’ fights to save not only their relationships, but often their daughters’ lives. The book succeeds because the mothers describe distressing times candidly and openly, not in hushed tones often used when relaying deep family issues.” Amazon.com Review
