Product description


Sarah Attwood has a background as a sexuality educator and has a sister with Asperger's Syndrome, so she clearly has the right credentials to write this much needed book. It was incredibly easy to read and free from any sense of awkwardness that a book on sex can have... I thoroughly recommend it and feel that children and teenagers will get different things from the book depending on their own individual level of development and personal situation. They can easily revisit the sections that are relevant to their own lives. Sarah Attwood has admirably filled a niche in the market.

About the Author

Sarah Attwood worked for fifteen years as a sexuality educator in Australia, where she designed a wide range of sexual health programmes. Her particular areas of expertise include the education of parents and of school children aged 9 to 17 years. She grew up with a sister who has Asperger's syndrome and who has been an inspiration to her.
