Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory, puts her PhD to work as she talks to teens about the science of growing up and getting ahead. A must-have book for all teenage girls.
Growing up as a girl in today's world is no easy task. Juggling family, friends, romantic relationships, social interests, and school...sometimes it feels like you might need to be a superhero to get through it all! But really, all you need is little information.

Using scientific facts, personal anecdotes, and wisdom gained from the world around us, Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory, shares what she has learned from her life and her many years studying neuroscience to tell you how you grow from a girl to a woman biologically, psychologically, and sociologically.
Want to be strong? Want to be smart? Want to be spectacular? You can! Start by listening to this book.

refreshing and inspiring

positive, upbeat, kind, realistic, caring conversation with girls of all ages. Be yourself, you can make a difference is the overall message. I felt that I was having a talk with my own mom.

Thank you Dr. Bialik. For your ability to share both humor and vulnerability.

Really good book!

First of all: I always love when the writer is also the one reading the book!
Second, I think this book is a good book for girls and young women! And older women too.. I read it to know wether it would be a good book for my tween-girl.
I think the book is straight forward, not being affraid to talk about all the important topics, witout being judgemental or having the final solution to everything. A lot of times stressing that everyone is different and that different solutions for different girls, are really okay! This is one of the absolut best points in this book, I think!
I really think this is a good book for girls and young women! It covers a great deal of the important topics and concerns, sorrounding you, when you are young.
The only really "sad" thing, is that I can't find this book in my own language (danish), and my tween daugther isn't experienced enough in the english language, to listen to a whole book in english, and understand it. I would really like to have it translated into more languages :)
(sorry if there are spellingerrors or other errors in this text. I am not living in an english speaking country, so my written english, might be a little rusty ;D )
