100% Me is a must-read for kids approaching or just starting puberty. It encourages young adolescents on their journey to adulthood and provides lots of fun along the way. In three types of spreads - science, lifestyle, and advice - every subject is approached in a way kids will enjoy as they hunt or browse for answers to the mysteries of their changing bodies - as well as the opposite sex. The science spreads give all the biological facts with no embarrassing euphemisms, while the design ensures that information is presented in a fun and compelling way. Lifestyle spreads include games, quizzes, and thoughts on dating. Advice spreads deal with issues such as embarrassment, bullying, and failing in love. There is no "you must" or "you should" sentiment; kids are encouraged to reach their own conclusions. A totally new, practical guide to puberty Two books in one: The pink "100% Girl" section begins at one end; "100% Boy" at the other, with a purple middle section for both sexes. Hip design, using pop-art and graphic-novel styles, captures the fun and friendly approach of a teen magazine. Discreet yet intriguing jacket design makes this a body book kids won't be embarrassed to own - even the boys!
