"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

I bought this book to help me make sense of my changing body and feelings, and how to tackle friendships and social media in a secondary school environment. All of this the book delivered on and more! The guide is written in a chatty, friendly and warm way which makes you feel as though you are really discussing these issues with someone (rather than just reading a book). Despite this though, it also manages to get across clear and powerful messages on subjects such as online safety, sexuality, bullying etc... Reading the book doesn't feel like a lesson on how you should/shouldn't feel or what you should/shouldn't do, instead it offers friendly and accessible tips and advice in order for you to feel comfortable with changes going on inside and around you. The addition of quotes from other girls experiencing similar things is great and the Q & As between girls and a professional doctor and psychotherapist make you feel as though you aren't alone in what you may be experiencing. I would 100% recommend this to anyone between 9 - 14. It's a great book with great advice and info that would make a welcome addition to any girl's emotional toolkit for dealing with puberty and the early teenage years!
Deals with all the basics of puberty plus so much more....it’s been written with the clear goal of boosting a girl’s confidence, getting her to accept that there is no “normal”, that everyone is different and not to obsess over looks. I think every pre-teenager should have a copy of this book!
