Help me find a good book on mother-teen-age daughter relationships for my wife.

My wife has been over the top in her recent frustration with our 12 year old daughters lack of focus and lack of an exercise program. She (my wife) has been angry and almost in tears for the past few days.
She went to a series of classes on helping adolescents make appropriate choices but the suggested approach doesn't seem to be working. I myself have a more laid back approach and think my wife would be happier if she relaxed and let our kid be a kid.
In any case, my wife would like suggestions on good books on mom-daughter relationships. She read the recent Deborah Tannen book (which she thought was adult oriented) and "Reviving Ophelia". Any other ideas?
