A funny, frank and fearless guide to being a girl

Being a girl is not all sugar and spice. How can you possibly survive school and even think about talking to your crush when you have spots in places you didn’t even know you had, your boobs are too big (or too small) and the friend drama is off the charts? Luckily, bestselling YA author and sixth-form teacher Hayley Long provides a straight-talking guide to puberty – from cattiness to kisses, and everything in between. With witty black-and-white illustrations by Gemma Correll throughout, BEING A GIRL tells you everything you need to know about surviving puberty, in an honest and humorous way.

I thought this book was a fantastic guide for young girls! Here was my initial review on goodreads:

Overall feelings:

My overall feelings after reading this book are…

I’m not a Mum myself but I can imagine this being a saving grace to those who are! It must be highly awkward to approach your teenage daughter about growing up and ‘the birds and the bees’. This book takes the awkwardness away from it all and is a frank chat about life as a girl.
