‘Olson’s fictional yet information-filled account of Maddie’s steps into puberty is a funny and honest read for kids and parents alike who are approaching this sometimes awkward period. This manual disguised as a novel showcases Olson’s breadth of experience as a teacher, functioning as a class-within-a-book with straightforward language, a compilation of tips and tricks and discussion questions. With its pink cover and subtitle (“A girl’s survival guide extraordinaire”), it is targeted toward girls, but if a boy stumbles upon it, he will pick up some helpful information too.”–Emily Watkins, Publisher, Rochester Women Magazine
