Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring)
Factual information about the physical changes wrought by adolescence segues into a discussion of the accompanying emotional turbulence. Sheen's reassuring tone is spot on; less successful are generic "Case Studies": "Lester's voice broke during an important scene. Lester felt like running off the stage. But he kept on acting." Stock photos appear throughout in a gaudy layout. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
