Overview

Concurrently with her physical development, a teenage woman's opinions and attitudes develop and change as the years pass. She moves from being a girl, dependent on her parents for support and nourishment, to a relatively or completely independent woman. For some, this transition is easy, but for others, it is a period of apparent conflict, anger, and anxiety as the teenager and her parents find that their relationship is changing. Everygirl, a well-established best seller, provides reassuring advice about the mysteries and problems of growing up. The new fourth edition addresses current personal and social issues that concern young women.
Written in accessible language, Everygirl helps the adolescent woman to establish her sense of herself as a woman. It is essential reading for teenage women - and for those who wish to understand them better.
