Let the book 1 countdown begin!

The wait is almost over. In just one month, on September 14, Only Girls Allowed will be available in stores and online. Woo-hoo!

Only Girls Allowed is the first of four books in The Pink Locker Society Series. (In case you're wondering, Book 2, Best Kept Secret, will be released in January.) You also may be wondering: How have some people read the book when it isn't even out yet?

Well, the book was originally published by the fabulous website KidsHealth.org. Then, a book publisher called St. Martin's Press decided to publish it and three more to make it a series. Girls who read the original version and the new version will notice a few changes, hopefully for the better.

We'll be counting down to September 14th in a special way: We promise to publish at least one question a day on the blog every day until the first book is released. That means 30 new questions to offer advice on!

Here's today's question - it's a good one.

Dear PLS,
I am really short, skinny and not fully developed. My friends only talk about breasts, bras, boys and periods. I feel left out. What do I do?

P.S. I've read the book. It is totally awesome:D
Zoe, 12

All right, Pink Locker Girls, let's give Zoe our best advice!

Think pink!

You could just ask them to talk about something else like um... movies or school or something like that or you could could join the convosation if you no a bit about what they are talking about or you might even get some usefull information when you just listen to them. Just tell them to change the topic every 1nce in a while so you dont feel left out.

xoxo Question Gal

Also can you please answer my questions? I really dont know what to do. :(

You should either tell your friends that it bothers you that they're always talking about that stuff, and hopefully they'll understand. And if not, you shouldn't feel left out, it'll happen soon enough!

Ask questions, you can never be to prepared. If they are your real friends they will answer your questions. Friends are there to help each other, not to make others feel left out. If you run out of questions then just out of the blue start talking about something going on at school or about homework. Good luck! :)
P.S. I am really excited for the 1st book to come out!! :D

Tell them you are not comfortable with what they talk about and tell them to talk about something else, If that doesn't work then you should find some other friends to talk about stuff that YOU want to talk about.

:) hope that helps!

I'm EXACTLY like you. I'm in 6th grade and 4 foot 7. And I weigh 65 pounds. I'm a stick (and not proud of it). Try to join in their conversations. Ask questions about what they're going through. It'll make you feel more prepared.

im usually on the other side, always talking about boys and stuff. but i also know one topic can get boring after awhile, so just tell your friends how you feel. try to find some new friends who can relate to you, but in addition to, not instead of your current friends.
hope i helped -

Well, Zoe, my friends are just like that. and I'm just like that. I'm a late bloomer and when my friends talk about that stuff I just walk away and find somebody else to talk too.

Hope this helped,
