Item Details

This thoughtful yet humorous Q & A book for tweens answers all the important questions that adolescents face, such as: Why is it so hard to figure out who I am? Why haven't I ever been in love? Why do others make fun of me? Why do my parents fight? And many more. Do You Wonder Why? offers reassuring advice on dealing with low self-esteem, peer pressure, family, and friends. Written with candor and in a friendly, nonjudgmental tone, the Sunscreen series has the answers when kids have tough questions. "Pouilloux acknowledges the pressure that friends and the media can exert when it comes to smoking, drinking, and self-image, while encouraging independent thought and taking things at one's own speed." -- Publishers Weekly
