Girls approaching puberty have lots of questions: How can they get rid of zits? Why do they sometimes feel cranky and scared? Are they "normal"? With a relaxed conversational style, this comprehensive and compassionate guide will help answer those questions and many more--even those that are too scary or embarrassing to ask.

Loaded with information that will help tween girls understand and cope with the physical and psychological changes that go along with puberty, this updated and expanded coming-of-age guide will be shared and read over and over until all those changes don't seem so confusing.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a straightforward tone laced with humor, Girl Stuff: A Survival Guide to Growing Up by Margaret Blackstone and Elissa Haden Guest, illus. by Barbara Pollak (updated from the original 2000 publication), covers everything from body and hormonal changes (menstruation and acne) to the emotional roller coaster of adolescence to how to protect yourself. Do's and Don'ts sidebars and close-up categories (e.g., an alternative medicine mini-chapter explaining aromatherapy, yoga, etc.) offer factual information; candid b&w illustrations show such things as the difference between a circumcised and uncircumcised penis, and a girl and woman. A valuable handbook for clearing up common questions and misconceptions. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
