Getting through the school year can be tough.

New friends, lost friends, class and sport schedules, and above all, negotiating the social challenges of it all. The members of Truckee Girl Scout Troop 461 know the difficulties of staying positive and courageous when things get tough and have produced a key ring book of quotes for students.

The free book contains 52 quotes, one for each week of the year. Empowerment, resilience, tolerance, kindness, change and action are the themes of this small book that can fit in a backpack or purse.

Quotes are removable from the ring, so a favorite can be shared with a friend or used in a variety of other ways. Also included are eight “Dare to Act” cards challenging girls to take action personally and socially.

“If just one quote can effect the life of just one girl, for one day, then we have accomplished our goal,” according to Free key ring books are available in Truckee at The Bookshelf, Cake Tahoe or For Goodness Sake.

Or, view the quotes online and request a key ring book.
