The Girl Guide: 50 lessons in learning to love your changing body

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Marawa Ibrahim is a world record holder for hula-hooping. More importantly, she’s experienced her share of embarrassing period leaks and unflushable poos. Fortunately, she’s written a very helpful book about all of those things and more (boobs, bras, periods, vaginas, boys, girls), packed with helpful, friendly advice and anecdotes.

Illustrated in a magazine-style high colour, glossy look that retains a feel of cheeriness, this is a book all tween girls should have. Like a chat with a friend with an excellent sense of humour, The Girl Guide is precisely the straight-talking and empowering read girls need at what can be a confusing and awkward time.
