Description of this Book

Going through puberty? Thinking about puberty? Worried about growing up? Don't worry! This book is for you. Packed with facts and thoughtful advice, plus words of wisdom from older women and quotes and questions from girls who are also going through it, this book covers every aspect of going through puberty for girls (and even has a chapter on what's going on with boys because knowledge is power, after all). Also filled with quirky illustrations from the fabulous Flo Perry, coupled with space to scribble your own thoughts and ideas. From body basics like breasts, spots and periods, to the questions with no easy answers (Does how you look matter? Is a crush ever wrong? Is it bad to be jealous of your best friends - and does having a best friend even matter?) Plus, of course, clear and empowering information on sex, sexuality and gender and a whistle-stop guide to the wonderful world of online. Written by women who just happen to be mums: word whizz Sophie Elkan, psychotherapist Laura Chaisty and GP Dr Maddy Podichetty.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Funny, kind and wise. * Daisy Buchanan * Brilliant, accessible sensitive and funny - get this book for your children, your godchildren, your grandchildren and then everyone else's children! * Emily Maitlis * This book frees girls from any ill-conceived myths about what they should or shouldn't' be feeling as they go through puberty. It says that you are ok the way you are - a message that could not be more important particularly during this crucial time where our bodies are going through a revolution. * Brita Schmidt, Women for Women International -UK * Wise, kind, non-judgemental and empathetic. This book should be within every girl's arm's reach * Sali Hughes, columnist, mother and author *
