The Lovereading4Kids comment
‘There is no right way to be a girl or rubbish way to be a girl’, says Hayley Long, explaining the purpose of this positive and hugely reassuring guide for young girls. It’s a message that can’t be repeated often enough in this age of non-stop scrutiny by social media. She covers a wide range of subjects, from hormones and periods to fashion, hair and that all important ‘matters of the heart’. It’s all sensible stuff, but what makes it really special is the tone: friendly, accessible, sure to give readers confidence and remind them that being a girl is brilliant!
Being a Girl by Hayley Long
Bestselling YA author and sixth-form teacher Hayley Long provides a straight-talking guide to puberty...from cattiness to kisses, and everything in between. With witty black-and-white illustrations by Gemma Correll throughout, Being a Girl tells you everything you need to know about surviving puberty, in an honest and humorous way.
Being a girl is not all sugar and spice. How can you possibly survive school and even think about talking to your crush when you have spots in places you didn't even know you had, your boobs are too big (or too small) and the friend drama is off the charts.
The perfect companion to James Dawson's Being a Boy for any PSHE educator, library
A book with chapters titles Hellcats and Hormones and A Quick Herstory Lesson definitely works for me... frank and funny with line drawings throughout. The Bookseller (Children's Previews)
