Just for boys
The Boys Body Book: Everything You Need to Know for Growing Up YOU
by Kelli Dunham, R.N.
Dunham covers a lot of ground in this book, from the care and feeding of boys' changing bodies to the stresses of dealing with parents, friends and the outside world. Some topics could have been covered in a separate book; things such as study skills, household chores, finding a job, or dealing with divorcing parents are not as relevant to some readers. Others may also find that Dunham is overly focussed on boys' hygiene. Another minor problem is the drawing of the reproductive system, which is woefully simple. However, the book offers good tips for dealing with the challenges of growing up.
