Being a Girl
Being A Girl is about exactly that: being a girl. It tells you what you need to know about yourself and your life as a girl, including boys (as in dating them), periods, shaving, and many other topics. It talks about many physical changes that will happen as you become a young lady, as well as about emotional changes. The book was very informational. When I had finished the book, I knew more about myself than I had a little while ago. Also, when I was reading Being A Girl, it wasn’t just a big, boring, book of facts. It felt like I was talking to a real girl/woman who has been there before. It felt like there was a real person talking to me. The book felt very personal. I loved everything about Being A Girl. It is one of the only books about this kind of stuff that isn’t: A) a boring book of facts or B) super cheesy. It was a great book, and I recommend it for (GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!) ages ten to fifteen.
