"Did an adult just give you this book? Did you roll your eyes or laugh a little? Either reaction would be normal because this book is going to give you a lot of information that may seem awkward. It can also be a little funny, but it's really important. It's about puberty--that time when your body starts changing to look more grown up. Sometimes it may seem as if you are the only one dealing with body changes, but EVERY body goes through puberty. When you understand what's happening to your body, you worry less and you better care for yourself. And whether you're learning about your own body or about bodies that are different from yours, it's normal to be curious, and it's great to understand that puberty is for EVERY body. Learning about this stuff might make you feel excited, interested, embarrassed, or just plain awkward. However, your feeling is normal. Keep reading. The more you learn, the more comfortable you'll be."-- Provided by publisher.
