I bought this book for my 10 year old grand daughter who is approaching pubity. She was thrilled with it. After initally telling me "I know all about that" while reading it she came to me and told me that she had been wondering about "that" but now knows what it is. I also read the book to refresh my memory of the details too! We are now able to discuss the issues in the book in a matter of fact way, between granny and grand daughter. I certainly recommend this book.
