The Secret Me My Mind by Ali Ritchie


The Secret Me My Mind by Ali Ritchie

I feel so weird! Moody, gloomy, feel like nothing's right? Don't worry you haven't turned into a weirdo overnight. It's called growing up! Find out what's going on and why, and you'll feel a whole lot better. Growing up can be tough. As there's mind-boggling emotional stuff to contend with as well as all the physical changes. Lots of girls don't feel comfortable discussing these issues with an adult, even (or especially!) their mums. Its friends they choose to talk to. But friends aren't necessarily up on the nitty gritty facts. That's where The Secret Me series comes in. With an accessible style and positive, open approach, along with funky illustrations, this book, and its companion volume, tackles the growing-up stuff with humour and good sense. There are activities, sections to fill in, quizzes, diagrams and charts, questions and answers, as well as the plain-talking straight facts.
