I tried out the book and read two chapters.I have read other books at my school library.....but not this one.I think it will help girls in the phisical changes that happen.From periods to shaving to pimples,it tells true stories of these tasks that make every girl unstable!Also,I read the trial online becuse I also go through these things,and I am only ten years old!
