Inspired by the popular photo project of the same title that went viral in the spring of 2015, Strong Is the New Pretty is a photo-driven book comprised of 100 high-quality black-and-white and color images (with minimal text) of fierce and joyful girls--a celebration of what it means to be strong (whether athletic, bookish, brainy, brave, loyal, or courageous). The photographs champion the message that girls are perfect in their imperfection; beautiful in their chaotic, authentic lives; and empowered by their strength instead of their looks. They are messy. They are loud. Wild. Full of life. Adventurous. Silly. Funny. Strong.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Strong is the New Pretty is] a book of images of young girls being athletic, being active, being strong, being proud talking about their hobbies, talking about what they aspire to be in their lives. And it just [makes] me think...I hope that we're able to give that over to the younger generation." --Kate Winslet, Los Angeles Times

"I'm so obsessed with Strong Is the New Pretty. The book has a little bit of everything. It's an amazing thing [that] my daughter and I have bonded over so hard, and she's looking at these girls and looking at what the messaging is. It's so well done. She wants to know the ages. I read the captions to her. She sleeps with it at night. And she is looking at girls who are talking about what they feel they can do in life. It's so well curated too. It has this beautiful look and feel to it. It's really the first thing in a while to kind of knock me off my feet." --Drew Barrymore, USMagazine.com

"A great book... I gave [it] to my daughters and watched as they pored over it." --Nicole Kidman, Vogue.com

"Femtastic... A powerful book. " --FamilyCircle Magazine

"Strong Is The New Pretty is the definition of girl power. " --Buzzfeed

"A lovely exploration filled with exquisite images of girls and quotes about what makes them strong, beautiful, and confident ... stunning." --School Library Journal

"Positively moving and totally glorious." --Booklist

"This is an amazing celebration of the strength, confidence, and energy of girls and young women who are just beginning to understand their power in the world. Imagine how much more we can all accomplish when girls honor what their bodies can do and focus on their dreams rather than fixate on what they look like and obsess about their shape." --Ann Shoket, former editor in chief of Seventeen magazine and author of The Big Life

"Within the pages of Strong Is the New Pretty, we see girls as they naturally are and what they want and demand the world to see. They are inspiring, wise, and grounded in the certainty that they will take the world by storm." --Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees & Wannabes and the Owning Up curriculum
