Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The birds and the bees get a twenty-first-century spin in these inaugural entries to the Growing Up series. Geared toward cisgender male and female adolescents, each book confronts age-old concerns, including periods and pubic hair, skin care and sex, and crushes and contraception. These books also introduce topics such as body shaming, bullying, social-media usage, sexism, and more. Guy Talk talks male anatomy, from the foreskin to spontaneous erections and ejaculation. Working to combat toxic masculinity, this installment touts crying, skin-care routines, and six-pack-free abdomens as perfectly healthy. Cox also broaches consent, condemning the urge to rush or pressure a partner. Notwithstanding some minor inconsistencies Guy Talk discusses orgasms and sexual pleasure; Girl Talk does not these accessible guidebooks, complete with a diverse array of illustrations, valuable support help lines, and an interactive Guide for Grown-Ups, make comical, compassionate confidants, too.--Shemroske, Briana Copyright 2018 Booklist"
