Hi, My 10 year old daughter is going through puberty early and I thought it would be a good idea to get her book that goes through all the science, what to expect, etc. Obviously I chat with her, but I want her to have her own source of info as well, as she gets easily embarrassed. However, I've heard that some of the books out there now are going down the new sexist "progressive" view with quite a bit of unscientific info. Does anyone know of any book titles that are good? I thought maybe an older one, but I don't know some of the info is outdated.

The You Book helped me and my older sister when we were going through puberty!

The American Girl book on puberty was wonderful and my daughter loved it but I don't know if it has been revised to include any woo woo.
