About the Book

For every tween girl wondering about her changing body and changing brain, this funny and highly illustrated guide is the answer. Packed with advice about everything from periods to bras to body hair—PLUS tips on how to deal with crushes, new emotions, and all the chaos in between!

Growing up is fun . . . but it’s tough, too. There are a lot of unknowns and it can be weird and messy for girls. Worry not! This book covers EVERYTHING girls need to know, and it's all been reviewed and fact-checked by medical consultant Dr. Radha Modgil.

To make your body your best friend (not your enemy).

To get out there and do YOU (even when you don’t want to move off the couch).

The thoughts and feelings that make you feel alone are shared by every girl on the planet.

To feel amazing through exercise, nutrition, and skin care.

And so much more!

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“In a playful, inviting, and nonjudgmental tone, Ibrahim offers tween girls advice based on her own experiences, covering everything from moodiness, periods, vagina anatomy, and bra sizing to body-image concerns and the importance of mindfulness and exercise.” - Booklist

“Wise, funny, and abundantly honest” - Publishers Weekly

“The author shares her own embarrassing moments: wetting her pants; menstrual leaks; a yeast infection; chafed thighs. The takeaway for readers is that this kind of thing happens to everyone ... Conversational text, lively design, and photos of a person of color make this growing-up guide stand out.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Younger tweens looking for an empowering, buoyant, and candid introduction to puberty will find comical comfort here.” - Booklist
