Body Drama

by Nancy Amanda Redd










Gotham Books

Winter 2008



Written by a young woman for young women, and featuring see-for-yourself photos that reassure, inform, and even inspire, Body Drama is an unprecedented girl's guide to her body — a fresh, frank, fun, and visual approach to the age-old and 21st century issues most girls find so embarrassing that they never talk about them, even with their best friends!


With topics culled from Internet chat rooms, popular magazines, and the author’s personal discussions with young women, Body Drama will be the most comprehensive and contemporary compilation of body issues that matter to young women today.  Written with a doctor’s endorsement in language that girls can understand, Body Drama is a uniquely realistic resource determined to tell young women the whole, unabashed truth about what their bodies are doing and why they’re doing it.
