Redefining Normal – New Book News

Happy Monday! I have been loving the posts and conversations on the blog of late. THANK YOU everyone – new contributors and new readers!

Today, I thought I’d share an announcement with all of you:

Prufrock Press is publishing my third nonfiction book, entitled:

REDEFINING NORMAL: A Girl’s Guide to Embracing Her Identity and Realizing Her Potential

I am very excited for this book. It is sort of a gift to my own girls, and something I have been working on for the last several months. As described in the original proposal, REFINING NORMAL covers all aspects of resiliency, including social acceptance, self-efficacy, and emotional balance. I provides girls with evidence-based strategies to understand, evaluate and develop their own resiliency. Furthermore, it covers some areas unique to girls, including relational aggression, cyber-bullying, social acceptance, peer pressure, and empowerment.

One of my favorite aspects of the book includes stories from other teens and adults about their personal experiences finding their own unique voice.  If you would like to contribute your story, or participate in this project in some other way, please CLICK HERE and complete this form.

REDEFINING NORMAL is slated to come out in the Fall of 2013.  I hope you will be part of this exciting project in some way! I am planning a mini-series on resiliency as it relates to giftedness starting next week. Hope to see you then as well.

  1. It sounds like an incredible book, Christine, and probably just what this world needs. I can’t wait to read it, pass it along to my daughter and hopefully, get some other gals I know to buy a copy for their girls.

  2. Congratulations, Christine! I’m wishing you much joy in bringing this lovely project to fruition.

  3. Wishing you all the best, Christine! Sounds like you’re going to have a super busy year!

  4. Congratulations. I’m looking forward to it–especially with Ceana entering her first year of Middle School in August!

  5. Congratulations, Christine! Your non-fiction is so important (and I’m sure your fiction is equally so). I know I love the things you’ve taught me about gifted children. Thank you! Congratulations!

  6. Congratulations, Christine! I can’t wait to read this book. The topic is wonderful.
