Dear Librarians,

She was hooked by the age of six. The on-going, outrageous dysfunction and denial in her life was enough to turn anyone into an addict. Nationally recognized university professor and internationally renowned speaker Ronda Beaman confesses her drug of choice was earning Girl Scout badges. Lots of them. And she never quite kicked the habit.

Published as the Girls Scouts of America celebrate their 100th anniversary, LITTLE MISS MERIT BADGE is a humorous, yet harrowing memoir that explores the nature of resilience and the accomplishment addiction many young girls develop to compensate for growing up in a challenging environment.
