Giveaway- Girling Up

Bialik, Mayim, Girling Up: How to be Strong, Smart and Spectacular.
May 9th 2017 by Philomel Books

Copy provided by the publisher

While I absolutely would have gotten a copy of this for my own personal daughters, it has a bit too much information for me to feel comfortable handing it to other people's daughters. Since I have a copy the publisher sent me, I'll be glad to forward it to one lucky winner! Make sure your comment links back to your blog or gives me some way to contact you.

From the publisher:

Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory, puts her Ph.D. to work as she talks to teens about the science of growing up and getting ahead. A must-have book for all teenage girls.

Growing up as a girl in today's world is no easy task. Juggling family, friends, romantic relationships, social interests and school sometimes it feels like you might need to be a superhero to get through it all! But really, all you need is little information.

Want to know why your stomach does a flip-flop when you run into your crush in the hallway? Or how the food you put in your body now will affect you in the future? What about the best ways to stop freaking out about your next math test?

Using scientific facts, personal anecdotes, and wisdom gained from the world around us, Mayim Bialik, the star of The Big Bang Theory, shares what she has learned from her life and her many years studying neuroscience to tell you how you grow from a girl to a woman biologically, psychologically and sociologically.

  1. I gave my Kiddo Robbie Harris' book It's Perfectly Normal, but this sounds like a nice companion for when girls get a little older. However, I can certainly understand not feeling comfortable not handing to to other people's daughters.

  2. I love Bialik and that she has science stuff in a book for teen girls. Yeah!

  3. This sounds like an important read for girls in today's world. My daughter is grown, but I would have loved to have been able to give her a copy. I'm even curious about some of the material presented. Great choice for school libraries.

  4. Well, while I do not believe that this is the book for me, it seems like it is good that there are books like this out there! :)

  5. Bialik is really pushing people to see that girls and woman are equals! I love it!

    Happy reading this week :)
