I am an Emotional Creature


VG/M Ensler, Eve. I am an Emotional Creature : The Secret Life of Girls Around the World. Villard, 2010. 148 p. 9781400061044. 20.00.

Author of The Vagina Monologues, Ensler has crafted a new collection of fictional monologues inspired by young girls from around the world, including the United States, France, Egypt, Israel, Iran, and China. These powerful narratives cover a wide range of social issues from peer pressure, eating disorders, dating, abusive relationships to sex slavery. Told through a mixture of poetry, proses, questions and answers, and are interspersed with interesting factoids. This is an important work recommended for any Young Adult collection. Camille K.
