What does it mean to be a girl in today's world? Using her own experiences as an actress, scientist, and writer, TV star Mayim Bialik talks directly to teens about everything from first kisses and first periods to rocky friendships, family responsibilities, and figuring out your true passion.
 
Growing up as a girl in today's world is no easy task. There are pressures of family, friends, romantic interests, and school, not to mention changing bodies, evolving social circles, and shifting views on the world. 

Using stories, interviews, personal anecdotes, and facts, Mayim Bialik, the star of The Big Bang Theory, talks directly to teens about what it means to grow from a girl to a woman biologically, psychologically, and sociologically. Mayim takes the tone of a cool, smart aunt and uses her own experiences to illustrate her points. In five sections (How Our Bodies Work; How We Love; How We Spend Our Time; How We Cope; and How We Matter), she takes a look at what it means for girls to come of age today, how can they take control of their paths, and what can they do to help shape the types of futures they want for themselves.

Informational, inspirational, and insightful. Girling Up is pretty much everything I wish someone would have told me as teen girl.

Mayim Bialik is best known as Amy Farrah Fowler on America’s #1 comedy, The Big Bang Theory, a role for which she has received four Emmy nominations and a Critics’ Choice Award.

    I heard an interview with Mayim on TV and she was saying this book is about how girls feel awkward about things as they are growing up and gives examples how to she felt and the science of a situation of how to deal with it. A must read for all young girls. I’m getting for my Granddaughter when she gets a little older.
