This is precisely the kind of book that I wish I'd had when I was a girl. The author covers pretty much everything—from braces to bras. She offers sound, upbeat advice and helps kids understand that they aren't alone. So often, puberty is an awkward, embarrassing phase that kids can't wait to finish with. So many things are changing and it can be very confusing or overwhelming. Girl to Girl helps take the mystery out of those things. This is a book that parents should read with their kids. It discusses hygiene, hair and nail care, as well as how to properly insert a tampon and how breasts develop. There are illustrations, and while they are not photorealistic (they are by the same artist that did the cover art), they accurately depict everything. The book does NOT discuss sex. Parents may want to go through the book with their daughters in case there are questions or concerns that come up. The book is written in a reassuring, conversational tone and is accompanied by illustrations on every page. The advice is upbeat and optimistic. This book promotes a healthy body image and good self esteem while educating girls about the changes happening during puberty.

I am so glad I read this book when I was younger. It was very helpful, and as someone who had a really hard time with accepting my changing world as I became a teen, I feel confident recomending this to others. This book is good for discussing with your child, but light enough they can read it to themselves. It is totally worth eight dollars. :)
