5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for anyone who is or was an adolescent girl February 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Beautifully constructed and powerful in their deceptive simplicity, these stories are timeless and real. They transported me back to the joys and agonies of adolescence. I loved them as a sweet reminder but I'll also recommend them to my 12-yr-old niece. They will surely resonate with girls her age. In fact, in this new generation that is exposed to "edgy" everything, I think a book like this is an important reminder that something like getting your period for the first time carries some significant emotional weight. Ms. Gibbons allows us to experience the intimate ups and downs of adolescence, and then makes it okay because it's not as scary when other people know exactly how you feel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Coming of Age Stories? Here's to Gibbons! October 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Realistic and heartfelt, these three short stories are no nonsense coming of age tales. The author relates the traumas and triumphs that dominate the lives of adolescent girls. Are my breasts large enough? What does getting my period for the first time mean? What does falling in love mean? Well-done and down to earth.
