The perfect book for mums who want to share with their daughters and for daughters who can't always share with their mums...Dilvin Yasa left home knowing a lot about skydiving (her mother was an instructor) but very little about sex, drugs, sleazy men and establishing appropriate boundaries with the person who performs your pap smear. Determined not to the pass on the plague of ignorance to the next generation, she wrote a series of letters for her young daughter to read when she reaches the eve of adulthood - sharing the things that only a mother can teach her daughter. Honest, moving and witty, this is both an accessible parenting book and an entertaining self-help guide for young women, exploring everything from picking the right bra to self-confidence, the dating game and flying the nest. Drawing on her years of experience as a journalist for women's magazines and sharing some hilarious anecdotes from her own coming of age, Dilvin Yasa provides frank and useful advice on the sometimes painful, often joyful and always interesting journey into becoming an adult.
Dilvin Yasa is the features director of Cosmo Bride, Cosmo Pregnancy and Cosmo Health magazines, and her articles have appeared in countless magazines from madison, Harper's Bazaar and Real Living, to the kind you buy in shrink-wrapped bags. Dilvin lives in Sydney with her husband and daughter.
