You Grow Girl! is a useful, delightful and all out fabulous book by Dr. Zoe Williams. It made me smile and nod all the way through – it tackles all the stuff a girl needs to know as she goes through puberty yet doesn’t always get told. 

 It is a fabulous resource! As Holly Willoughby says on the cover – it is the book every girl needs.

Who is Dr Zoe Williams?

Well she’s pretty awesome is Dr Zoe, the author of this book.  She’s a doctor on TV and in RL , she’s a mum and a few years ago she was a gladiator on TV oh and she’s a TV presenter too! More than that she is empathic, inclusive and a huge champion for m positive physical and mental health. She is absolutely the right person to write a book on puberty and helping girls to become the best version of themselves.

I actually got the chance to meet her a few weeks ago and she was really nice, unstarry, grounded, friendly and wise.

She is the perfect puberty companion and guru for our girls.
