Sorry but not all girls in this age category care to read dumbed down books. Totally inappropriate. My daughter was really upset and wants to send this book back to amazon for a refund, I have to agree. Don't believe all the hype here - there are PLENTY of high quality books that deal with growing up. Save your money, and do your research before buying this trash.
As you'll experience from reading this fictitious diary, the hopes, dreams and fears of today's preteens have not changed much from those of their grandmothers.
This book is a great gift for any age.

Reading this book made me realize I really need to take more time to talk with my daughter about her fears, worries, hopes and dreams. I don’t listen like I should and there are subjects I need to take the time to discuss with her. This book was worth reading simply for the ideas for discussions I got from it.
If you’ve got a daughter ages 9-13, I would recommend this book to you and your daughter.
It is written in the form of a diary. The writer is a 12-year-old girl in an era before the big technology boom. There are no cell phones or computers. It reminded me of when I grew up.
But the questions and the observations that "the girl" writes about are just as timely today. Subjects such as when will I get my first bra? Does a certain boy love me as much as I love him? Why can't my parents get along? It has many truths that I believe if we all followed them the world would be a lot better off.
At the back of the book there are questions that the author, who happens to be a psychologist, wrote directed to the kids who read this book. These questions could also be used by a mother/daughter team reading this book together. They have a lot of depth and could make talking to each other a little easier.
After reading THE TRUTH (I'M A GIRL, I'M SMART, AND I KNOW EVERYTHING), I learned to remember to make all of my kids in my class feel more welcome. I can do this by not ever picking athletic teams and by not belittling questions asked. I already knew this but sometimes a little reminding is good, especially when it is right before a new school year.
All in all, a very pleasant read.
