As the mother of a teenaged girl, I am intimately familiar with THE DRAMA. Everything in our house is a drama.
Nancy Amanda Redd has written a thoughtful book for teenaged girls appropriately entitled Body Drama: Real Girls, Real Bodies, Real Issues, Real Answers. Nancy Reed, a former Miss America swim suit winner has written a book talking to teenage girls about their bodies and the questions they might be too embarrassed to ask parent or even their friends.
Body Drama is broken down into Chapters covering such subjects as Skin, Boobs, Down There, Hair Mouth and Nails and Shape. Within each of those Chapters it explores such questions as “I have acne on my butt and back.” It then explains what’s going on, how to deal with the problem and probably the most important aspect to a teenager, “what to do if they notice.”
Body Drama is not for the feint of heart; it includes unretouched (at least I hope so) photos of butt acne, stretch marks, naked girls, bare breasts and vulvas. Yes you read that right. Vulvas. The photos are tastefully done and relevant to the subject being discussed.
The book provides useful information without sounding preachy or condescending. It is written in a way that teenagers can relate to and understand.
This is a great book for a teenaged girl.
