This book was absolutely fabulas!!!! i think that every twelve year old girl should read this book. It shows girls that they aren's the only one who goes through embarresing things. I also think that it will bring a girl and her mother closer together. When I read it I had some questions for my mom that we got closer, and I felt like I could ask her amything. So i hope this brings all girls closer to their mothers.

Makes Judy Blume books seem tame!

When my 9 1/2 year-old daughter requested this book, I said, "Sure, let's go check it out!", as I'm always game for a trip to the bookstore. After reading the synopsis of this book, I figured I'd better give it a quick read before she read it. Boy, was I glad I did! ...
When my 9 1/2 year-old daughter requested this book, I said, "Sure, let's go check it out!", as I'm always game for a trip to the bookstore. After reading the synopsis of this book, I figured I'd better give it a quick read before she read it. Boy, was I glad I did! My daughter has just learned all about puberty, and it has definitely been the subject of many conversations among her girlfriends as of late; however, this book is no "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret...", a favorite of mine when I was a similar age. This book pushes the envelope in many, many areas, including language (someone is called a "douche"), bullying situations (one girl's eyebrows are shaved off at a slumber party), and some situations that are unlikely, and may cause unneceesary anxiety in a 'tween girl(the main character has her tampon come out in a swimming pool, and then kicks it away with her foot, and tries to swim away before anyone notices).

I can appreciate the author's desire to create literature that resonates with this age group, in a way that Judy Blume resonated with my generation; however, I truly feel that Ms. Myracle has missed the mark, and in her efforts to reassure young girls navigating through an often angst-ridden time, she has int his book, created scenarios that as adults we know are unlikely, but may given already anxious 'tweens even more to worry about.

    Such a bad book! don't read!

    I read this book in a book club my teacher thought it would be a decent book for 11 year old girls. Well! we were all surprised! I was SOOOO shocked This should Not be read by children parents should explain to their kids what is going to change in their body.
    I would NEVER recomend this book to anyone.

    Why bother?

    I am a mother of three girls, and one day, my twelve year old brought this book to me. I read the first few pages, finding a few words that were not necissary. I read until the end, shocked at why this book was approved for 12 year olds.
