Body Double: Understanding Physical Changes

Body Double: Understanding Physical Changes

by Tad Kershner

Hardcover(Library Binding)



Sometimes, bodies are just gross. Pimples and hair in new places are only the beginning. Often, you can't control what your body does. You might wish you were taller or shorter, bulkier or thinner-or maybe you face difficult physical challenges every day. Everyone is different, and you and the guys around you are all changing at different rates. You can't trade your body for a different one-but with a few attitude checks, you won't need to.

Handling pressure at school or on the field. Going through a growth spurt-or not. Dealing with parents, friends, classmates, teachers, and coaches. Starting-and ending-relationships. Just trying to fit in. When did life suddenly get so intense? A Guy's Guide covers issues that preteen and teen guys deal with every day. True-to-life stories and problems pair with real advice in this series designed to tell it like it is and to help you take action. Because sometimes, everyone needs an assist.
