I was impressed by the respect and sensitivity shown towards girls at this critical developmental stage and the breadth and depth of the research. It candidly highlights the complexities our girls face -and sometimes the mistakes they make - while also rejoicing in their great strengths and the way they so passionately want to contribute positively to the world around them. - MARISE McCONAGHY - Principal, Strathcona Girls' Grammar in VictoriaJust as adolescent girls can be frustrating, confusing and complex, so too are they wonderful, inspiring and earnest. While many authors attempt to unravel the complexity of the adolescent girl, few have approached it with the curiosity, compassion and thoughtfulness of Madonna King. "Being 14" is a book for anyone wanting to look beyond the cliches surrounding adolescent girls to really understand and celebrate these passionate, optimistic and determined young women. - JODY FORBES, School Psychologist & Student Counselling Coordinator, Brisbane Girls Grammar SchoolShe's become the voice of current affairs - Anna Bligh on Madonna Kingskilfully deconstructs complex science . . . easily accessible for lay and professional readers alike. - AUSTRALIAN MEDICINE on IAN FRAZER: THE MAN WHO SAVED A MILLION LIVESa comprehensive guide to what your daughter is thinking and going through - SA Life
