Written by an experienced educator and her daughter in a reassuring and down-to earth style, The "What's Happening to My Body?"

It also includes information on steroid abuse, acne treatment, sexually transmitted diseases, AIDS, and birth control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straight Talk on Puberty 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. Good discussions of homosexuality, wet dreams and many other issues. Extremely comprehensive.
