Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This book provides a summary, from a Christian perspective, of the many changes wrought by adolescence on boys. Topics are covered in a question-and-answer format, each spanning three to five pages, thereby making the information easily digestible for kids. Subjects covered include acne, tattoos, piercings, differences in body types, and a host of sexual issues. In many ways, the answers provided are similar to the information in manuals that approach the subject from a secular perspective, and the author adopts the reassuring avuncular tone common to these books. Supporting Bible verses are frequently quoted, and topics such as homosexuality, venereal disease, and the use of contraceptives are not mentioned. The black-and-white illustrations, featuring gawky boys with quizzical or mock-terrified looks on their faces, help to keep things light. No index is included, but the short chapters can quickly be scanned in the table of contents. Parents and boys who prefer to approach these topics from a religious point of view will find this useful.--Morning, Todd Copyright 2010 Booklist"
