Kelly is passionate about helping youth navigate coming-of-age challenges through storytelling – and formerly as a reproductive health educator. ๐‘ช๐’‰๐’Š๐’๐’ ๐‘ถ๐’–๐’• draws on two decades of classroom experiences (plus science-based info and plenty of humor) to tell a heartwarming “growing up” tale that normalizes, de-stigmatizes and celebrates the ups and downs of puberty.

Tune in as we dive into the inspiration behind the book, the message she wants to convey to youth about their changing bodies, and how she hopes to “rewrite the future story for young women.” Link in bio! @kellyolsonbooks

“Thank you, Kelly, for the opportunity to read this groundbreaking work.ย  The infamous โ€œissuesโ€ of puberty are discussed in real lifetime and in a straightforward yet natural way.ย  There were times I laughed until I cried and at other times felt embarrassed and concerned for Maddie.ย  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

‘Olsonโ€™s fictional yet information-filled account of Maddieโ€™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 Olsonโ€™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 (โ€œA girlโ€™s survival guide extraordinaireโ€), 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
