When a girl suddenly wakes up with a beeping silver horn growing out of her head, her normal life is changed. She finds herself scared, left out and bullied by her peers.
Designed as a conversation starter for facing anxiety, The Silver-Horned Girl demonstrates to tweens and teens how similarly insecurity affects everyone. Whether they experience a visible difference or one less obvious, no one should have to suffer in silence.
In addition to this creative tale, a section has been dedicated to "Talking Points", a "Mental Health Tool Kit" and valuable resources for students, families and teachers along with a special space to journal.
After suffering from anxiety and low
self-esteem due to wearing a back brace for scoliosis, Lisa B. Owens decided to use her story through The Silver-Horned Girl to help others. Owens graduated from Penn State University in 1987 with a BA in Journalism. She has been an Associate Producer at WTVR in Richmond, VA, a Special Projects Producer for NBC News Channel, and a consultant in a variety of areas.
She currently lives in North Carolina with
her husband, Chris, and daughters,
Madison and McKenna.
