With a relaxed, conversational approach, Girl in the Know is a straight-talking little manual packed with everything a girl should know about the many changes she can expect in puberty and how to make her way through it all as smoothly as possible.

But there's way more than just the body basics --- the book is divided into three main sections (Your Body, Your Mind and Taking Care) where girls will find advice on their sexuality, mood swings, crushes, health and much more.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4–7—This well-done primer will help guide girls through the physical and emotional changes that come with growing up. Using straightforward language and a no-nonsense approach, Katz's text explains puberty in a relaxed tone. The comprehensive section on nutrition, or "fueling up," is particularly good. Melnychuk's wonderful multicultural illustrations stand out as well. They are beautifully global and strike a great balance between cartoon and realistic art. These renderings combined with Katz's reassuring tone make this basic guide one of the better additions to the genre.—Elaine Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta
