Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

According to Girlology, knowledge is power — or more specifically — Girl Power! By educating teen girls about their bodies and the opposite sex, this book gives them dignity, confidence and girl power to build their goals, beliefs and future.

Girlology is for girls and about girls; it's not your typical sex-ed experience. It offers a powerful message based on helping girls get the facts, form their own opinions based on personal values, and apply these to everyday life. In this entertaining, fun and factual life-lesson book for adolescent girls, Drs. Holmes and Hutchison tackle the big issues facing middle school and high school girls today. This book presents straight talk about friendships, parents, sex, sexuality, teen relationships, media influences, values and decision making without being preachy or dull and scientific.

Girlology is for the young teen reader (age 9-14) with the facts girls need to know told in the voice of a best girlfriend; Girlology has chapters like, Where Have all the Normal Parents Gone? After counseling thousands of teens, the authors expertly relate to the feelings that teen girls have as they learn to survive with social clicks, boys and the changes in their own bodies.

Ultimately, the authors teach the girls to have Girl Power, which they define as: Getting to know your mom Becoming empowered by your potential Learning how to use your Girl Power to figure out your values, belief and self-confidence. Demystifying peer pressure, boys and teen language Understanding your body Understanding what threatens the health of your body Understanding sex, puberty and pregnancy Knowing the difference between sex and intimacy; love and lust

Thisguide speaks out to teen girls, in language and a voice they understand; counseling on everything a teen girl would want to know — or as a teen would say stuff that matters. By teaching teen girls about their bodies and sex, Girlology teaches them about themselves.
