“Thank you, Kelly, for the opportunity to read this groundbreaking work.  The infamous “issues” of puberty are discussed in real lifetime and in a straightforward yet natural way.  There were times I laughed until I cried and at other times felt embarrassed and concerned for Maddie.  This book belongs in the hands of every female tween. I plan to share it with my 12-year-granddaughter.”

A Book Review from Emily Watkins, Publisher, Rochester Women Magazine

‘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
