Gina Loveless remembers going through puberty with reverence and joy.
Oh, wait . . . puberty? Scratch that. Puberty was totally awful, awkward, and full of embarrassing moments. (And frankly, adulthood hasn't been much different.) She used her background as a fact checker for Men's Health and Women's Health magazines, her MFA in creative writing from California Institute of the Arts, and her memory of how much puberty was gross, but also really awesome, to put together this book and help kids realize that puberty may be weird, but at least it's weird for everyone. Gina is also the author of the Diary of a 5th Grade Outlaw series and pens profiles and pieces on mental health for Men's Health. Find her at lovelesswriting.com and on Instagram @lovelesswriting.
