You're not a little kid anymore. When you look in the mirror, you probably see someone who is taller...bigger...with a face that looks more like an adult's than a child's. The changes you're experiencing on the inside—in your mind and emotions—may be even more intense than the ones everyone can see on the outside. Growth and development during adolescence involves every aspect of your identity. All these changes can be exciting...and scary. But these changes are entirely normal. This book will help you understand what's happening to you. Every adult has gone through the same intellectual, emotional, sexual, and social changes you're experiencing. Some people progress through these changes faster than others, some earlier, some later. Each teen is unique. Wherever you fall on the spectrum of growth and development, don't worry—you're right on schedule!
