The Girls' Guide to Growing Up Great Reviews

Wise, kind, non-judgemental and empathetic. This book should be within every girl's arm's reach * Sali Hughes, columnist, mother and author *
Every young teen needs this book * Nadia Sawalha *
Funny, kind and wise. * Daisy Buchanan *
Brilliant, accessible sensitive and funny - get this book for your children, your godchildren, your grandchildren and then everyone else's children! * Emily Maitlis *
This book frees girls from any ill-conceived myths about what they should or shouldn't be feeling as they go through puberty. It says that you are ok the way you are - a message that could not be more important particularly during this crucial time where our bodies are going through a revolution. * Brita Schmidt, Women for Women International -UK *
