A joyful, informative, head-to-toe guide to puberty for adolescent girls written by an experienced children's book editor in the guise of nine older girls at a summer camp. Wholesome, inviting, and body-positive, this book offers straight forward facts and advice in a peer-to-peer tone.
Adah Nuchi grew up in New York City and spent her summers at camp, where she learned (almost) everything she needed to know about being a woman. She worked for many years as a children's book editor, and now divides her time between writing and going on adventures, which mostly occur on the beach.
"Nuchi captures the uncertainty and excitement of growing up while
delivering needed information in a safe, sympathetic, and nurturing
manner." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"With an engaging premise, lively design, and comprehensive, inclusive content, this has sure-fire appeal--especially to girls who have been to summer camp or dreamed of going. A fresh approach to a subject of perennial interest." --Kirkus
"A fantastic addition to the realm of puberty books...will break down the walls put up by even the shyest of tweens...this book deserves a place on the shelf in every library and classroom where young women gather...will be devoured by tweens." --School Library Journal
