Author Louise Spilsbury takes a casual, lighthearted approach as she explains how girls change to become women and boys change to become men. She describes body changes that occur in both sexes and the emotional changes that are likely to go with them as teens reach sexual maturity. She also offers practical advice on everything from shaving to periods, and she discusses a wide range of issues that include growing independence from parents, dating, the biological aspects of sexual intercourse, contraception, sexual diseases, respect for a partners feelings about sex, homosexual impulses, and general health considerations. A glossary and a list of Web sites that focus on teens and their problems are presented at the back of the book. Humorous, cartoon-style illustrations on every spread complement the informal but sensitively-written text.
