Empowering Quotes to Ignite Your Girl Power

NOTE: This post is sponsored by HarperCollins.

In TBH, You Know What I Mean, Cecily is getting sick of the way boys are acting at school. With women’s rights trending and female activism more popular than ever, the boys are feeling a bit insecure. This causes them to act out for attention, leaving Cece feeling totally frustrated.

Three BFFs prove that girls can do anything they set their minds to in the sixth book in this hilarious series told entirely in text messages, emojis, and passed notes. Perfect for fans of Invisible Emmie and the Dork Diaries.

TBH, sometimes boys say dumb things about girls. And Cece is sick of it!

When she leads a super-successful event at school to raise awareness, everyone starts looking to her to take charge—of everything. Prianka needs ideas for National Poetry Month, Victoria wants advice on volunteer projects, and Gabby needs homework help.

To be honest, being a leader is fun but the pressure is OOC (out of control)! Can Cece help her friends without totally losing it herself?

Rather than get angry, she channels her frustration into a super empowering Women’s History Month event at school. The big day ends up being a huge success that makes the news, but more importantly, teaches everyone – including the boys – about the importance of equality and celebrating the accomplishments of women.
