It was very interesting to see my daughter show this book to some of her friends and observe their reactions. Although there were "ew" "gross" and other expressions every time they picked up the book, invariably they would go back to it again and again. It helped open up discussions on bodies and what to expect of them.
My daughter was getting a lot of feedback from her older/experienced friends so this book helped her understand things in a more wholesome manner. One of her friends was relieved to know that she is not the only girl who's periods started at 9 as the book mentions the range of 9-14yrs. She said that aloud with an sigh of relief after reading the book.
Body shapes are also discussed and the girls started talking about their body shapes. The positive aspect of it is their understanding that all bodies are different. At least, it is the beginning. They keep going back to the book every now and then which is very positive.
There are references to using deodorants/ tampons which are not so common here. So, I just told her what options seem more practical in India.
