The story of Puberty Blues is the adoption of an image in order to be accepted; in other words, peer pressure, the proverbial teenage plot-line. Apparently girls can piece together a sexuality disconnected from the evils of the media and lascivious retailers. I admired the rawness and honesty.

Puberty Blues is unstructured, essentially non-fiction and more like a diary than a novel. It was a great day at the beach.

In exchange for them backing off of him she has sex with all three of them. On average, a girl starts puberty between the ages of nine and fifteen. Of course there aren't as nearly a lot of guys who treat girls the same way as they were in this novel of course there are still exceptions and girls are less hostile talking to other girls about sex.
