Ellie notices that her body is changing. Hair is growing in new places and there are other changes happening too. Ellie's mum helps her understand that she has started growing into a woman.

Following Ellie as she begins to notice changes to her body, this simple resource helps parents and carers teach girls with autism and related conditions about puberty. It covers all the changes that they will experience, both emotional such as new feelings and physical such as periods. This fully illustrated positive and entertaining book provides the perfect opportunity to talk about puberty with girls and young women with autism or related conditions.

"'These attractively illustrated books, with their clear, anatomically correct pictures and simple, unambiguous text, deal bravely with the aspects of sexuality that are challenging to teach and will facilitate discussion and learning. They will be a very welcome addition to the bookshelves of families who have an adolescent on the autism spectrum.'"
- Sarah Attwood, author of Making Sense of Sex
