A Wonderfully Wild Ride
Puberty is a natural part of having a body. Everybody goes through it. On occasion it can feel more like a roller coaster, but puberty can be a wonderful journey and the perfect time to notice and learn about all the brilliant things your body will do on its way to adulthood.
Growing and Changing
Dig into the specifics about the changes you may experience during this wild and wonderful time. Your body is perfect exactly as it is today, and it will be perfect during and after puberty, no matter how it changes! Let’s explore all the fascinating details of these exciting changes.
Beyond Your Body
Becoming you can be confusing at times. It can feel like you don’t really know who you are and what you like anymore because it is different from the past. Listening to yourself will help you find wise people to answer your questions or give you support and encouragement when needed.

Everything in Sonya Renee Taylor's approach is positive and encouraging. She acknowledges many colors and body types and provides just the right amount of detail for a tween/pre-teen reader.
*Every other book I researched in this genre had an inordinate focus on appearance & traditional notions of beauty.* Something I wanted to avoid.
They also, without exception, addressed interest in "boys" - excluding anyone who might not be interested in boys & reinforcing the confusion they may be feeling about not being "normal." To be clear, the book doesn't encourage or even go into detail on this topic, it simply refers to developing feelings for "someone" using generic pronouns. This is just one example of Sonya Renee Taylor's subtle approach to inclusiveness & cultural sensitivity.
If you're looking for an encouraging, straightforward, medically accurate, inclusive guide for your 9-12y.o, This. Is. Your. Book.
Adult readers: If you haven't already checked out the author's other book, "The Body Is Not An Apology," I highly recommend doing so. Sonya Renee Taylor is a gift to Humanity ♡

The author writes perfectly for either children to read on their own or together with an adult. I have been reading it with my daughter and it’s great for answering all the questions she has.
But my biggest reason for thinking this book is so great is the positive body image messages all the way through the book. It talks about how every body is completely unique and beautiful. It states the importance of there being no one way for your body to develop as well as celebrating all different body types.
Also, if anyone would rather avoid sex topics in a book then this is the one for you.
I read the book myself first and I though it was very informative and answered most questions that a girl growing up would have. Also I liked that the book wasn't dummed down or sugar coated, everything was called for what it was and the glossary on the back of the book explained words that they might not be familiar with. Thanks for the body positive language throughout the book. I hope these girls grown up loving their bodies more than I ever did.
My boyfriend read the book too. He seemed to enjoy it. He had lots of questions, as he haven't had to go through the same changes himself, but he finished the book, feeling more educated and understanding what his girls are/ will be going through and why they act the way they do at times. His girls are 10 and 12 years old.
