Written by Anne Katz, R.N., Ph.D. Illustrated by Monika Melnychuk.
Published by Kids Can Press Ltd., 2010.


With a relaxed, conversational approach, Girl in the Know is a straight-talking little manual packed with everything a girl should know about the many changes she can expect in puberty and how to make her way through it all as smoothly as possible.

But there's way more than just the body basics — the book is divided into three main sections (Your Body, Your Mind, and Taking Care) where girls will find advice on their sexuality, mood swings, crushes, health and much more.

  • Your Body: The Ins and Outs
    • The Skin You're In
    • Invasion of the Body Snatchers
  • Your Mind: The Brains behind the Beauty
    • Your Support Crew
    • Turning On and Tuning Out
  • Taking Care: Hi, Maintenance!
    • Fuelling Up
    • Girl on the Go
    • Squeaky Clean
    • Checking In
  • More Questions?
  • Index
Dr. Anne Katz is a nurse and author of four books about cancer and chronic illness. She lives in Winnipeg where she works as a clinical nurse specialist at CancerCare Manitoba. Girl in the Know is her first book for non-adults and the most fun book she has written so far. When writing this book, she thought about all the things her mother never told her when she was growing up — and she hopes that readers will be able to talk to their moms and dads about growing up and getting in the know.

Intended for ages 10 to 14 (Grades 5-8).

Price and availability subject to change. Shipping and applicable taxes extra.
