This essential guide to growing up for girls covers everything children have always wanted to know but were afraid to ask. Friendly and funny text features case studies and questions from 'real-life' anonymous readers to encourage the idea that different experiences are still normal. Subjects that might seem daunting to readers are covered with sensitivity and quirky humour. Puberty and personal hygiene are covered in detail, as are relationships in and out of school, including different types of bullying, and how to stay safe online. The guides describe what happens when--and most importantly, why--making growing up a little less scary.
