Do you worry about not fitting in with others your age? Are you the victim of bullying because you believe in different things or look differently than others? Does your uniqueness leave you feeling lonely, friendless, and hopeless?
In her book, Good Girl, Bad World, author Alexis Bloomer shows that you are not alone, you can have friends, and there is hope. Although successful in high school, Bloomer had very few friends. She experienced many of the things you might be facing now. Then, at age twenty-three, she made a video that forever labeled her as the ‘millennial video girl.’ Her video Dear Elders reached over 70 million people and encouraged millennials to change the status quo. Bloomer’s experiences encouraged her to start the #GoodGirlMovement, an organization that encourages women to promote self-love and show each other respect. Inspired by the #GoodGirlMovement, Good Girl, Bad World, encourages women to be ladies with self-respect in an age and a society that encourages women to stray from who they truly are. Women from around the world have told their most personal stories in hope that they can help other women.
Good Girl, Bad World is like talking with a good friend. With humor and honesty, Bloomer’s experiences show that you can be a good girl in a bad world. You don’t have to compromise your beliefs and values to fit in.
