    This short book about bodies, dating and sexuality is incredibly well-written and will be a great guide for 21st century teens and young adults. (Fun fact- I'm a 40-something mom who grew up in "purity culture" and found this book warmly supportive and informative.) I know that many parents want to make sure their values are represented in the resources they provide for their kids, so these are my observations; You Do You is fully affirming of the LGBTQ community and uses inclusive language, This short book about bodies, dating and sexuality is incredibly well-written and will be a great guide for 21st century teens and young adults. (Fun fact- I'm a 40-something mom who grew up in "purity culture" and found this book warmly supportive and informative.) I know that many parents want to make sure their values are represented in the resources they provide for their kids, so these are my observations; You Do You is fully affirming of the LGBTQ community and uses inclusive language, along with information specific to trans and non-binary individuals. The book offers straight talk about sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy risks, and abortion. It also stresses consent and body autonomy. It normalizes all body types and sizes and discourages comparison. It encourages kids to talk to parents and/or trusted adults. I can't think of a better resource for teens and young adults than this one. Definitely recommend. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion- which I am always happy to give. ;) My thanks to the author and publisher for this opportunity! #NetGalley #YouDoYou

In this book, Mirk discusses the topics that have been stigmatized to the point that those going through changes (or are years past it) are afraid to even ask questions like “what is normal for my body?” and “how much intimacy do I have to give in a relationship?” However, Mirk tells her readers that their first questions need to be “what are my values?” and “what am I comfortable with?” Years past puberty myself, I still felt empowered by the knowledge and encouragement Mirk gives readers. Mirk does a good job of giving all the facts without opinion or judgement, simply giving readers the knowledge they need to make choices that are best for them. That being said, this book has a very liberal outlook that is not pushed but is definitely in the background -- and that’s a good thing. A conservative book about sexuality would leave readers, especially those still struggling with changes, with more questions. Mirk’s approach feels like a safe place to have questions and learn.

    I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher through NetGalley. Opinions expressed are my own. This book will be a GREAT resource and every library should have a copy! I grew up with American Girl's "The Care and Keeping of You." "You Do You" is definitely a bit past that in the information it contains and the audience it's for, but it's got that same comfortable, informal, and informative feel. I do wish it had a little more information on how to figure out certain things, I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher through NetGalley. Opinions expressed are my own.

I think this book will help many families in the future.

    Really good, approachable sex-ed book for the modern era. Covers basics - (changing) anatomy, dating and birth control - but also approaches a variety of other topics - sexual orientation, gender identity, bullying, consent and sexual assault. Very much not a fear-and-doom, but a realistic and empowering book.

    This book was filled with good information. It also is very empowering in the way it encourages you to find what you want. I would highly recommend to teens or tweens that are starting the roller coaster of puberty.
