EMOTIONAL TEEN DRAMA ESCORTS GIRLS
ALONG ROCKY ROAD TO ADULTHOOD
CHANDLER, AZ (Summer, 2009) - Jam packed with emotional conflict, trials and tribulations, romance, and humor, The Attitude Girl by Mila Bernadkin follows outspoken, materialistic 17-year-old Vicky on her road to becoming an adult as she struggles with bullying, financial setbacks, idealism, loss and forgiveness along the way.
Lately, everyone thinks Vicky has an attitude problem … but in her eyes, she's simply being honest about what she thinks and feels - something she wishes everyone else would do a little more of - and realistic about what it takes to forge a successful future in today's economically unsteady world. She was NOT going to fail financially like her dad did before he left Vicky and her mom for good, and she wasn't going to fall for a sweet-talking guy who would happily steer her away from her goals just to get into her pants. She was being level headed! So why didn't her friends and family understand that?
In this debut novel, a first-place winner in the Arizona Authors Association Annual Literary Awards contest, Bernadkin draws on her experience as a teacher, mother and advanced graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature to create a compelling story that identifies with the tremulous world of mixed emotions and confusing messages of "maturity" today's teens live in as they feel their way through the process of becoming young adults.
