These books are reminiscent of Judy Blume and her female characters...realistic fiction about daily life with no subject off limits. Although this series has been controversial, I haven't seen anything in this book that I believe is inappropriate for tweens....it addresses typical curiosities about puberty and for that some people have banned the book.

If these had been written twenty-five years ago (ouch!) I would've eaten them up. They do a great job of showcasing feelings of a typical suburban twelve, thirteen, fourteen year old girl.
