Praise for Driscoll's Work:
A "girl power" book for pre-teens, Girl to Girl: The Real Deal on Being a Girl Today by Anne Driscoll spills secrets of keeping friends, cracks the code of boyspeak and gives the skinny on body image. Quotations from preteen girls pepper the text with a chorus of voices, along with sidebars, quizzes, cartoon illustrations and profiles of regular girls.
- Publishers Weekly
Driscoll, who has written for Teen People, surveyed hundreds of girls from around the country - and the world - regarding their experiences with friends, family, teachers, boys and more. What she found is that the majority shared experiences from which other girls could learn. In their own voices, girls tackle some of the big issues (boys, body image, boys) with Driscoll's advice on building better relationships and self-confidence.

"Ballet dancer or basketball star, super student or struggling scholar, most popular girl in the class or painfully shy loner, the joys and victories of growing up female are here. So too are the tiny pangs and grand predicaments that tear at young girls. And the best news is that Anne Driscoll offers ideas and solutions, practical steps to overcome life's hurdles. What a great present for a girl, or her parents."
