VG, 6 out of 6 stars
… take its readers seriously… full of knowledge about everything that I wished I had known when I was in the puberty.
“… a thoroughly prepared non-fiction book about everything from period, breasts and feelings to setting limits. It gives information and practical knowledge (…) it communicated with shrewdness and honesty in a natural way. (…) Magnhild Winsnes’ playful and colorful illustrations play a necessary part of the book’s message. They lift the text both with crucial information and humor and contribute to making the issues easily accessible and harmless.”
From the jury’s statement, the 2019 Ministry of Culture’s Non-Fiction Prize
Puberty is a nerve-racking, incredible time!
It’s happening! The body is changing, hormones take control, and the brain undergoes a kind of reorganising. It’s called puberty, and is the most dramatic transformation you’ll ever go through, but at the same time it’s the most normal thing in the world too.
The transition from child to adolescent is not easy. The medical doctor’s Nina Brochmann and Ellen Støkken Dahl says young girls should not have to resort to googling to find answers to the most important questions about their bodies. They have written The Girl Book to give girls answers they can rely on, a guide to bring along on the way.
In their books, The Girl Book, The Boy Book, and The Wonder Down Under, Brochmann and Støkken Dahl share their mission to empower young people through better sex education. They’re helping a new generation make informed choices about their bodies and sexual well-being. And because some girls enter puberty early and others late, this book is suited for girls from 10 to 18 years of age.
