Girl Stuff Guide to Teen Years by Kaz Cooke

A full on guide to the teen years

Girl Stuff has everything a girl needs to know. It will be her best friend through every change and challenge.

Few girls confide completely in their parents, teachers or health professionals. Many don't ask questions because they are embarrassed, or wrongly believe they 'know it all'.

Girl Stuff is written especially for girls - to inform and guide them through all the challenges of ten life, from before their first period to life as a young woman.

Featuring four themes: Body, Head; Heart; and Info to Go: Girl Stuff has been designed for girls to dive in, skip the bits the're not yet interested in, and devour the information most relevant to them - so a nine year old will get as much out of it as a nineteen year old.

With over 600 pages Girl Stuff has everything girls need to know about: friends - body changes - shopping - clothes and makeup - pimples (arrghh) - sizes - hair - earning money - guys - 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 - confidence.

Each chapter includes useful information, hints, facts, inspiring lists, cartoons and quotes from the thousands of real girls aged 12 to 18 who responded to a Girl Stuff website survey. At the end of each chapter there are details for over 350 websites, books and other information for anyone wanting to find out more on specific subjects.

Written in extensive consultation with more than 70 medical, phychological and practical experts; Girl Stuff provides the most up-to-date- and useful information possible.

Girl Stuff is an inspirational guide for teenage girls - to be shared with best friends, hidden under beds and borrowed by little sisters. Girl Stuff is also an essential resource for teachers, health professionals and parents.

Girl Stuff tells the truth and lets you make up your own mind.
