What this book is about
The Girls is a fantastic book to provide a really positive focus on representation of gender, and also to provide a stimulus for discussing friendship and recognising the importance of companionship. Throughout the story, the four girls have many different challenges and events, which they do together and alone. However the recognise that “they were as different as they were the same”. Within the story, there are subtle references and opportunities for discussion around mental health, religious belief, gender stereotyping and LGBTQ+.
