Growing up for Girls by Felicity Brooks

The book is about growing up being a girl. These include exams, friends, love and school etc.

My favourite section was about when you get bigger and taller during puberty. I learnt that you will get taller, and wider when you grow up. In most of the book, there are funny bits. Here is an extract from the book.

Quick Quiz:

Which of these can prevent pregnancy?

  • Having sex standing up
  • Having sex in the shower or swimming pool
  • Taking a bath or peeing immediately after sex
  • Wearing a tiara and fairy wings when you have sex

This may sound hilarious, but it gives the information you need how to behave when you grow up.  The anwer to this question is of course, NONE OF THEM.

In the home and school section, it tells you what it would be like in school before the exam. I learnt that, school is easier if you have a routine of what do to. I also learnt that being a good learner does not mean that I have to study all day. Breaks will also help you to be a better learner.

I also learnt about bullying, this includes: name calling, mocking, taking or damaging belongings. There is another type of bullying called cyber-bullying. This means bullying someone on social media or online. This includes sending unkind messages, videos or sending upsetting things online.

There are more you need to know about this book. Once you bought it, I hope you enjoy it. For me, I could not walk away from the book when I saw it at the bookshop, and I read it within two days!!!
