As she grows up, a girl faces issues and events that are confusing, worrisome, and challenging. Who best to offer advice and comfort than her mother? In 17 pairs of sensitive verse, poets Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple -- real-life mother and daughter -- exchange their thoughts on a variety of adolescent issues great and small, such as homework, messy bedrooms, lengthy telephone calls, the death of a grandparent, and schoolgirl crushes. In these compelling poems, created as notes to each other, both daughter and mother communicate their feelings about issues and ideas that virtually every family faces, bringing generations together in mutual respect.
