Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-7. Published in conjunction with the American Medical Association, this guide addresses puberty's changes clearly, and many of the seemingly male-oriented topics covered here could also interest girls: weight-lifting, for example, and handling arguments that escalate into physical fights. Cartoon drawings of too-perfect teens illustrate, but as in Girl's Guide to Becoming a Teen0 (2006) by the same author, the text's approach is straightforward, accessible, and nonjudgmental, whether the topic is same-sex attraction or divorcing parents. The volume closes with an extensive resource section, including hotlines. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2006 Booklist"
