    AMAZING

    I loved everything about this book! It was great!!!!! i am 12 going on 13 and a late bloomer. This book informed me about all of the embarrassing stuff that no pre teen girl wants to ask. i got this book when i was 12 years old along with my FIRST BRA! this book showed me how to wear it and everything. it also gets you prepared for not getting embarrassed when you have 'THE TALK!' in seventh grade! every girl should read this including teachers and other adults!

    Not that big of a deal...

    You shouldnt be embarrased about your peroid. Its just something us girls go through in life! Dont be afraid to ask your mom abou this sort of stuff. Trust me when i say you can always trust her because she has been in the same place as you! Also, dont wait to ask because you want to be prepared for when that special gift from mother nature visits you for the first time! You have to know what to do, so just ask your mom... she would gladly explain! I remember my mom explaining it to me and i had nothing to worry about! She got me stocked up and prepared - which is very critical to survive life as a woman! Also, your first period might seem bad, but trust me it gets a lot worse!!!!!! Good luck!

    Kool Book

    this book was amazing. i am 12 going on 13 and i first read this book in 4th grade and didn't really understnd it. Then, for my 12th birthday, my mom got it for me, along with my FIRST BRA!, and i got really embarrased. then after reading it with her and understanding that every preteen and teen goes through the same thing, i learned to understand it better. I felt more comfterable talking about this stuff when i was in 5th grade and having 'the talk' with my teacher and my peers. This book is good for every girl wanting to know about her body!
