Me and my body ISBN: 9780749660451
Anderson, Judith
Published by Franklin Watts (Problem Page series), 2005
A series of letters, diaries, texts and emails from young people with various worries about their bodies, along with replys, facts, tips for helping, and discussion points. Each problem covers only two pages, which could be limiting, but gives an excellent point of departure. Worries covered include: a boy who is shorter than girls he knows, a girl who hates starting periods, a boy with serious body odour, problems with pimples, tiredness, wanting to be thin like models, smoking, being overweight, asthma, drinking too much alcohol, and glue sniffing. A glossary, an index, and a list of websites are included.
Age: 10+
