As she matures, a girl faces issues and events that are confusing, worrisome, and challenging. Who better than her mother to offer advice and comfort? In seventeen pairs of sensitive verse, poets Jane Yolen and Heidi E. Y. Stemple—real-life mother and daughter—exchange their thoughts on a variety of adolescent issues great and small.
