A positive and empowering guide for girls who are going through puberty or are curious about in what's in store.
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, The Girls' Guide to Growing Up Great covers every aspect of going through puberty for girls.
From body basics like breasts, acne 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 resources.
The Girls' Guide to Growing Up Great is filled with quirky illustrations from the fabulous Flo Perry, coupled with space to scribble your own thoughts and ideas. With additional contributions from Laura Chaisty, a trained psychotherapist, as well as medical input from GP Maddy Podichetty, this well-balanced book gives a modern reflection of what it's like growing up today.
