Just as boys headed straight to last season’s The Boy’s Body Book for information and reassurance, this companion volume is destined to become the go-to guide for adolescent females. Fun to read and easy to carry, it answers all the important questions about becoming a woman that girls are sometimes too embarrassed to ask. From hygiene to exercise, teachers to peer pressure, everything’s discussed here, in a frank and friendly way: parents that drive you crazy, boys who’ve caught your eye, best friends, physical changes and menstruation, schools and grades, body image and proper nutrition, and moodiness and other emotional stuff. Sections on high school, part-time jobs, and even career planning will feed a girl’s dreams of the future. This entertaining, enlightening, and joyously illustrated look at growing up will be a staple of every girl’s bookshelf for generations to come.

Kelli Dunham, RN, BSN is a nurse, comedian, and author of several books, including The Boy’s Body Book, The Girl's Body Book, How to Text Boys, and How to Text Girls.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4–7—Dunham provides honest answers to girls' most pressing (and embarrassing) questions. The text reassures girls entering puberty that their changing bodies and feelings are perfectly normal. Breast development, body hair, and menstruation are explained along with practical information about bras and sanitary products. The later chapters discuss the emotional side of entering adolescence—one's changing relationships with friends and family and the effects of surging hormones. The author maintains the neutrality of a good healthcare provider and does not waver into a lecture. However, the "Notes from a Real Girl" passages don't always ring true. They sound like a real girl who was an adolescent in the 1980s. Overall, the book's tone and lively cartoon illustrations are friendly and nonthreatening. While this title does not stand out as groundbreaking or new, it's still a solid choice for basic information about puberty.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta
