Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything A Girl Should Know This book is extremely comprehensive. It answers every puberty question that I can think of and has detailed drawings of different kinds of tampons, pads, anatomy, hair follicles etc. Many puberty books contain at least a bit of misinformation - I was unable to find any inaccurate information in this book. Many puberty books talk down to kids and use childish cartoons - this book addresses a multitude of puberty related issues in an easy to read, matter of fact style.
