In Your Jeans : A Pocket Guide to Your Changing Body
Puberty is confusing. Normal happy young people suddenly can't figure out what is going on. They're obsessively self-conscious; yet paradoxically, they're so vulnerable that they don't want to talk about it. "In Your Jeans" offers a safe, nonembarrassing way for preteens and teens to find answers on their own. "In Your Jeans" provides accurate and up-to-date information about developing bodies and growing up for both boys and girls. In simple, straightforward language, the authors discuss all the changes that happen at puberty from emotional upheavals, peer pressure, and personal health to pimples, dating, and sex. The small size and friendly Q&A format make "In Your Jeans" ideal for teens who simply want the facts without a lot of drama or preaching.
