Summary Meet Ariana, Isha, Rosie and Esme as they let go of childhood and fumble, or sprint, toward an uncertain future. Without flinching, Going On 13 chronicles four girls' coming of age and the precarious moments between being a little girl and becoming a young woman. As they grapple with issues of school, family, friends, and identity, Going On 13 allows us to see what real girls face during this pivotal time of puberty, while providing a vehicle for discussing important developmental milestones. The DVD and accompanying interactive study/discussion guide (available at helps educators teach about girls' lives and youth development in 21st century urban America. Going On 13 asks many important and critical questions, including: How do girls develop healthy identities while growing up in increasingly challenging communities? What does it take for a girl of color to grow up in our cities today? What do parents need to do help their daughters succeed? How do families maintain their home culture while supporting their daughters' navigating the American landscape? Going On 13 sheds light on the inner life of girls in our communities and reveals the spark and resilience each girl must cultivate in order to maintain a high self-esteem and love herself.
