for It's a Girl Thing by Mavis Jukes and Bonnie Timmons
From Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC)
An outstanding writer of children's fiction turns her considerable talents to nonfiction in this accessible guide to puberty written especially for girls approaching adolescence. Jukes uses a light conversational style to give basic information on bras, menstruation, health, boys, sex, birth control and "girl things" such as makeup, shaving, high heels and hair products. Each section is introduced with candid (and often amusing) anecdotes from the author's own teen years. Throughout, Jukes stresses individual tastes and differences and gives clear, straightforward facts so that readers can make informed and responsible choices. (Ages 9-16)
