Summary: Too girly or too boyish. Too quiet, too loud. Be ambitious, but don't hurt feelings. Be inquisitive, but don't interrupt. Be outspoken, but don't be bossy. Most of all, be yourself - but be a lady. What's a girl to do in a world filled with contradicting gender expectations, aside from saying sorry? Within the subtle yet beautiful illustrations and powerful rhyme of The Girl Who Said Sorry, developing girls will learn that self-expression and personal choices can be made without apology, and with self-esteem.
