The Body Book is from Nancy Rue and goes along with her Lily Robbins series of books. This is a non-fiction book though and it tells girls all about what to expect with puberty and their periods. I really love these books because they explain things that you may be too embarrassed to ask (with questions from Lily and her friends included) and each chapter also includes a prayer you can fill in the blanks with to pray about what is going on and some activities to get you to think about these changes and what to expect.
The book is 9 chapters long and I think it very well covers what is going on with girls bodies and in such a way that is more geared towards them and not as awkward as health classes.
I received a free e-copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
