KIRKUS REVIEW

Dr. Gottlieb directs his forthright yet warm and personal writing to the budding adolescent. His sensitivity toward her emotions and feelings is matched only by his astute perception of her innermost problems and puzzlements. Utilizing the authentic questions asked him by numerous young girls, Dr. Gottlieb has organized his book around such areas as the processes of menstruation, intercourse, conception and childbirth; brief but comprehensive explanations of the male and female sex organs, differences between boys and girls in their sexual feelings, the meaning of sexual deviations in adolescents, etc. But this is no clinical, dispassionate account. A mature psychological approach to sex leads Dr. Gottlieb to dispel fears, to correct scores of sexual misconceptions, to describe the character of adolescent feelings, and to probe the true meaning of femininity. A vital, mature and healthy guide for every growing girl.
