A Girl's Guide to Life by Katie Meier: Book Review

When I first received this book I was a bit leary as I do not have a teenage daughter, my oldest daughter is 8, a long ways from being able to read, yet understand the concept of this book.  Though, after reading this book, it is probably the best written book on exactly what the book is called, "A Girl's Guide to Life".

This book explains it all.  Questions that a teenage girl may have and wonder about, though may be scared, embarrassed or ashamed to ask.  This book answers all questions a teenage girl might be thinking though have no way of going about asking a parent or even an adult confidant. Questions about periods, puberty, body changes, gossip, boys, sex, etc., just to name a few.

To be quite honest, I wish there was a book like this when I was growing up.  I was never able to discuss anything with my parents, and I think that was of myself being afraid, not for them not wanting to talk to me about issues.  This book would have been the perfect resource to my questions.

I highly recommend that all parents definately look into buying this book for their pre-teen, teenage daughter, your daughter will thank you.

I will be giving this book to my niece, Samantha, as she is a 13 year old girl, with most, if not all, of the questions that are answered in this book.
