Your Full-on Guide to the Teen Years
Girl Stuff is is written especially for teenage girls in a chatty style with lots of cartoons. It has everything they need to know about confidence, friends, body changes, phones & social media, shopping, clothes, make-up, pimples (arrghh), sizes, hair, embarrassment, what to eat, moods, smoking, why diets suck, handling love and heartbreak, exercise, school stress, sex, beating bullies and mean girls, drugs, drinking, how to find new friends, cheering up, how to get on with your family, and confidence and handling money.
Each girl can read about subjects at her own pace to inform herself and make up her own mind about when, or whether she is ready to embrace certain choices. The option of how to say "no" is always explained. Each chapter includes facts, hints, inspiring lists, hundreds of quotes from real girls, and details for over 350 websites, books and other information. With over 600 pages written in consultation with more than 70 medical and practical experts, Girl Stuff provides up-to-date and indispensible information.
