About the Book:

This book has been written to guide a growing girl through the difficult years of adolescence and make the transition from childhood to adulthood smooth. It answers in simple language all the questions that arise in her mind that out of embarrassment she is unable to ask. It is an endeavour to bridge the chasm between improper information from dubious sources and lack of information from seers. It provides useful knowledge about the anatomical, physiological and psychological developments that take place at this stage of life; helps discern the difference between normal and abnormal changes, between safe and high-risk behaviour. It educates the vulnerable teenager on reproductive health and hygiene, which is as important to her well being as physical, mental and social health.
