"In a time when girls may get misinformation not only from peers, but also the Internet, this book is a clearly written and accessible resource. Burningham covers the gamut of concerns from first bras to first menstrual periods. The information provided is complemented by Arnold's colorful illustrations, which depict a diverse group of girls with various body types. Particularly helpful are the use of 'Myth Buster' sidebars and questions from real girls that Burningham thoughtfully answers." -- Elaine Baran Black, School Library Journal
