Rule #6: Fuel your body.
Rule #15: Stay true to yourself.
Rule #22: Look good for you, not boys.
If growing up is so great, why does it feel so awesomely confusing?
I mean, at times it's kind of fun to see how I'm changing and my body's developing. But at other times it feels really scary and I feel very alone, as if I'm the only one in the world going through this.
When it first began happening to me, I, Camy Baker, did what I always do when I have questions I need answered: I asked my mom and sister what they felt like when it happened to them. They were both really helpful and had lots of stories and advice to share. That made me feel a whole lot better. Because growing up can be scary and exciting and embarrassing.
But don't think you have to go through it alone! Hopefully, my thirty cool rules will help you as much as they helped me. You can't stop yourself from growing up, but you can understand yourself better so you learn to love the brand-new you!

Grade 5-7Body Electric provides advice to girls on surviving puberty with both optimism and sanity intact. Camys cool rules range from where to go with questions, to discussing the impact of mirrors on a girls psyche, to a surprisingly informative interview with a modeling agency. The importance of physical beauty is downplayed in favor of finding ones inner beauty. With its focus on having a good self-image and positive ways of dealing with hormones, this book makes an excellent supplement to works that deal more with the physical side of puberty. It Must Be Love combines a narrative about Camys sudden interest in boys and her first romance with tips on how to deal with boyfriends (dont be a needy girlfriend, like a guy before you go out with him, etc.). Camys first experience with dating is typical of sixth-grade relationships: lots of angst and worry and excited squealing with her friends. The fact that things dont work out between Camy and her chosen Boy Right makes this book more realistic than mainstream romance novels. Although the author tries hard to mirror a sixth-grade point of view, the voice of an adult with an adults knowledge often leaks through. Still, the tone is not condescending or know-it-all, and does not diminish the value of the unique approach these titles take on old subjects.Linda Bindner, formerly at Athens Clarke County Library, GA
