All the Stuff your Sister Never Told You
Carol Weston

We don't really have a level that this book fits into, but it is just too good to not carry. So please be aware that this book is meant for a girl a bit older and more mature than Level 4 typically targets.

Here it is! This book is full of straight talk about all the things girls ages 11-18 should know: developing bodies, love, friendship, popularity, sex, birth control, pregnancy, abortion, sexually transmitted diseases (including AIDS), alcohol, drugs, smoking, family relations, money, college and education -- and more. Without ''soapboxes, sermons, or nonsense,'' Weston lays out all the factual information about each topic so teens can make informed choices in their own lives.

Weston writes in a down-to-earth, big sister to little sister style. She is respectful to teens (and to parents) and has a remarkable humorous touch which keeps you reading through the sticky or uncomfortable spots (so girls actually make it through the pros and cons of each kind of birth control). She gives numerous examples from her own life, including journal entries from her own teen years. She also includes a section at the back of each chapter where she quotes real letters from real teens about issues they have been facing in their own lives and her answers to them. Her advice is wise and generally ''value-free.'' Weston encourages girls to make up their OWN minds based on their own beliefs. Her words are very empowering.

Girltalk is filled with conversations that I want to have with Becca and conversations I have had and have wondered whether or not she was listening. Weston writes in such an appealing style, girls listen. This is the kind of book I would have hidden under my bed, but that I would have read carefully. It answers the kind of questions I always wanted to know, but was too embarassed to ask. If you have a daughter age 11-18, Girltalk is a must. She'll be glad and you’ll be glad she read it.
