There’s a reason Girl Stuff was considered an instant classic for teenaged girls on publication – at over 600 pages, it simply covers every conceivable topic that your teenager could need information on. To shave or not to shave; how to survive a break-up with dignity; great books with strong female leads; unwanted pregnancy… it’s all here and delivered in Kaz Cooke’s trademark quirky style, complete with her wonderful cartoons.
Cooke has that wonderful ability to marry well-thought-out and researched material with a highly humorous delivery to produce an insightful book that is neither patronising nor clinical and is a must-have for every Australian girl over the age of twelve.
