    Meg’s dreams seem to predict the future—but can she make a better future for herself? “Filled with sensitivity and warmth” (Children’s Book Review Service). “It was crazy to have dreams that came true. If you talked about them, it’d upset the people you loved and make them angry. Meg had learned something bad about herself, an ugly secret.” And so she decided to keep the dreams to herself, writing them down in a special notebook. Sometimes her dreams were pleasant, but other times they were disturbing—especially the one about the cave with the blue light.   When Meg’s worst dreams begin to come true, she’s convinced they bring bad luck. Why else would her father move out to “find himself” or her best friend desert her for a rowdy crowd of older kids? Meg’s grandmother and a wonderful new neighbor finally help her realize that her “secret window” into the future can bring good luck, if understood properly.

    A teenage girl’s guide to being a confident, classy lady of substance in a substance-less world. 
     
    In a world where women and girls are constantly under attack from the media with photoshopped, airbrushed images and popstars that tell them all they need to do is party all the time, kiss a lot of boys, be a “mean girl” to gain popularity, max their credit cards to buy designer clothes, etc., The Lost Art of Ladyhood communicates the counterpoint to those of our teen popstars. Happiness does not come from revealing all your skin, going clubbing every weekend where you get so drunk you don’t remember who you kissed, or maxing your credit cards just so you can buy the latest designer jeans. Happiness comes from living a life of character. 
     
    Teaching girls how to be ladylike has little to do with crossing your ankles and sipping tea correctly; it’s about giving them tools and skills they can use to serve others, to be grateful, to think positively, to set powerful goals, to protect themselves from toxic relationships, and to learn to love themselves enough to where they learn to love others. The Lost Art of Ladyhood is a road map for navigate your way to confidence, classy-ness, character, and learning the lost art of being a lady.
