4. Ooh, I wish I still had friends with preteen daughters
I'd buy this book for all of them.

My mother got into hot water in more than one neighborhood for telling the preteen girls what was going to happen to them and that it wasn't a big deal and how to cope with it. My mother had been alone when hers first started and thought she was dying.

I was 15 and I thought I was going to skip the whole messy business, but no, the damned thing did eventually start.

One of the great compensations for getting older and losing your figure and your looks is being able to thumb your nose at the fertility aisle of the supermarket: "sanitary" products on one side and baby crap on the other.

We need to prepare daughters for that part, too.
