"I received this book from the Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review....

We need more books like this in today's society! Somewhat similar to the "Care and Keeping of You" book, this one covers a few more important topics and goes into better detail. It is well put together, appropriate for girls entering puberty and beyond, and packs a very powerful and inspirational message that most tween-and-teen magazines fail to deliver: that it isn't all about hair, make-up, clothes, and boys. There is so much more to life and being a girl then that.

Passing this down to my nieces, and saving it for when my daughter is old enough to understand. I strongly recommend this book!

"Reading this as an adult, I have no clue what pre-teens or teens would think of it. However, the basics are these:

Using science and clear communication, TV star Mayim Bialik teaches girls about "girling up" - puberty, stress, dating, eating healthy, college ... all of these topics and more are covered. Since Mayim was a "late bloomer" she has a slightly different perspective on growing up, and that shows. She is very clear to express that everyone is different at many points throughout the book, using her own life as an example.

I should say, also, that this book is an overview. She gives websites to visit frequently and often stresses when you should talk to a trusted adult about questions and problems. This is not to say that the book isn't informative and most likely helpful, it's just not necessarily the complete story. This book should start conversations.

" not at all what I was expecting, but a well thought out and informative book for young girls on their way into 'Girling Up' " said.

" I'm not the target audience for this book, nor am I in the position to share it with someone who is. But I found Girling Up to be an accessible look at growing up for young girls. I appreciated the repeated declarations that there is nothing wrong with being different. " said.

" Reads like a science text bookI like the author very much, as an actress. I found her book to read like a science textbook. After skimming through it I realize it was more for a younger generation it seemed. My daughter is 12 ..she may like it.Moving on " said.

" I enjoyed this book and it will be a part of what I go through with my daughter when it's time for her to "Girl up". I enjoyed her simple explanations of the science that happens when we hit puberty, her explanations of what happen in the body and the brain were clear and easy to understand. I can't wait to read some of the books she referenced in her book as well " said.

" I know I'm a bit older than Mayim's target audience, but I wish I had a book like this when I was growing up. The science is excellent and I appreciate that everyone is included in the discussion. I also thought that her sections on friendships and mental health were great. I will definitely be recommending this book to my friends and family with young girls. " said.

" I really liked Mayim's book-she addresses all personal and health issues in a frank and thoughtful way. She is realistic, discusses how to deal with depression, stress, eating healthy, exercise and even sex in ways that pre-teen girls can relate to and learn from. I was really happy with her thoughts & find this an excellent book for middle school libraries, with possibly a copy for high school libraries as well. " said.
