This book was really great. It talked about puberty and sex, drugs and health, and the author wrote her experiences, which made me either laugh or feel sympathetic. If you wanna know about YOU and you're between ages 9-14, get this book!

I highly reccomend this book! Mrs. Jukes uses her own experiences when she was about my age '12' so she can relate to the reader and the information is so accurate and reassuring and accually interesting! And I love her stories and her enthusiasm! And get this - no gory pictures! This is one of my favorite books on puberty.

in 1996, when i was 11, i was a very shy girl that needed some information. i got this book, and my questions were answered about my growing body. it was helpful, but what i really needed was the period book.
