Designed to be a friend through the teenage years, The Rough Guide to Girl Stuff will be your best friend through every change and challenge. ' Girl Stuff is the book I wanted when I was a teenager; a 'best friend' that will honestly answer every question about everything' - Kaz Cooke.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
