    I really thought the book appropriate, it touches on many subjects with care Would purchase again for other friends kids.

    A wonderfully inclusive puberty and growing up book that LGBTQ parents can feel comfortable reading with their children Coverage of gender, sexual orientation, and labels is done in an especially sensitive yet clear way The only caveat is that parents may want to supplement the specific body changes during puberty section with something from another book, as this book has of an overview than a lot of details.

    I bought 2 of these, one for my developmentally disabled daughter and one for her first serious boyfriend, who is also disabled They have been reading and discussing it, and it has helped make connections for each of them that previous guides books talks hadn t I highly recommend this book for all young people The information is clear, correct, non judgmental, and accessible.

    I adore this book My 11 year old, who is generally rather unwilling to discuss puberty, does enjoy graphic novels and was willing to engage with this book After we read through it together, they requested to look through it with a friend who came overand the two of them read it together for quite some time the other kid s parent was happy her kid was interested in the topic, and I think bought a copy for them to have at home, too My 11 year old isn t interested in dating yet, so we focused on the first half of the book about puberty and such for now If I were to change one thing, I do wish there was information about menstruationit is covered briefly, but I would have liked a lot on pads tampons, etc However, that s just nitpicking overall we loved the book and will be referencing it and moving on to the second half, which is about sex as they get a bit older.

    Love this book It has quality information explained in a way that kids won t feel awkward about it The characters are likable and you can see yourself in there with their worries Especially since it is an inclusive look at puberty and sexuality I would say this is the most important publication in its class since American Girl s Care Keeping of You.

  6. Parsons Parsons says:

    Not for the judgmental or faint of heart, though There are realistic diagrams and drawings of genitalia It also mentions gender identity and sexual orientation Mostly, though, the message is that puberty and teen years can be confusing but not to be ashamed of one s changing body I thought it was very positive.
