Offering a fun, sassy, and girl-power–inspired approach to understanding puberty, this beautifully packaged guide offers tweens an appealing and fresh take on entering adolescence. This celebration of maturing bodies and spirits is invariably positive, while providing factual information on menstruation, pubic hair, acne, eating disorders, and other issues essential to girls entering puberty. The emotional challenges of this stage are also addressed, including information on sexual abuse, bullying, maturation reluctance, and conflict resolution. With straightforward and conversational advice on everything from tampons to teasing, Puberty Girl is a trustworthy resource for girls seeking answers to embarrassing questions and looking for a way to embrace their new selves. Inspiring photographs of real girls create a sense of shared community, while instructional illustrations teach young girls about their changing bodies.

About the Author:
Shushann Movsessian has been facilitating workshops on puberty for girls for the last 13 years at the Royal Women's Hospital in Sydney, Australia. She is a psychotherapist and has experience in counseling, group facilitation, and training.
From Booklist:
Gr. 4-7. Like Lynda Madaras' Ready, Set, Grow! (2003), this glossy title aims at girls anticipating the first stages of puberty. Movsessian, a psychotherapist, has lead workshops on puberty at Sydney, Australia's Royal Women's Hospital for 13 years, and her warm, cheerful, informed approach seems rooted in her extensive experience. In addition to chapters about the basic body changes during female puberty, including one about menstruation and the necessary equipment, the author offers helpful suggestions for conflict resolution, listening to one's feelings, and understanding personal boundaries (and when they are breached). She also includes a brief list of boys' puberty changes, and a closing chapter mentions homosexuality. The glossy, girl-magazine design, with lots of color photos of attractive preteens, is matched by the bubbly, girl-power tone: "Girls, love your vaginas!" It's the frank advice about inserting tampons, pursuing health, and managing emotions that really distinguishes this title. Many of the organizations and resources on Movsessian's Web site are Austrailan, so American readers may want to consult Madaras' book for more information. Gillian Engberg
