"I kept wanting it to happen. When it did I remember thinking, 'It's about time.'" "I was worried at first. Then it
really wasn't so bad after all."
"I remember my brothers weren't allowed to hit me in the chest anymore. I was kind of pleased about that."
What mysterious condition are these now grown-up girls talking about? Ah, yes, puberty! With scads of personal
stories and an abundance of useful, detailed information about girls' changing bodies and feelings, author Lynda
Madaras and her daughter Area Madaras have expanded their guide for girls on the verge of change. First published in
1983, the bestselling classic has been revised and updated several times over the years to keep up with ever evolving
facts and wisdom about puberty in girls. In this third edition, the authors continue their straight talk on the
menstrual cycle, reproductive organs, breasts, emotional changes, puberty in boys, body hair, pimples, masturbation,
and all the other fun, scary, and interesting things that go along with growing up. Filled with anecdotes,
illustrations, diagrams, and honest, sensitive, nonjudgmental information for the young girl, the revised edition also
addresses the new scientific facts about when a girl actually begins puberty (earlier than previously thought), advice
on "female athletic syndrome," eating disorders, unwanted attention because of early development, and information on
eating right, exercise, AIDS, STDs, birth control, and so much more. A welcome, reassuring book for parents and
daughters, designed with the understanding that some girls and parents will want to read it together, and some will
want to read it on their own; without a doubt, though, all will benefit. Got boys? Don't miss What's Happening to My
Body? Book for Boys. (Ages 8 to 15) --Emilie Coulter
