The diary of a teenage girl

Free books for 10-12 year olds

I couldn’t get through it. Diary of a Teenage Girl of the Future took forever, giving me the feeling that the pages were tripling in length instead of getting shorter. To top it off, the vulgar vocabulary made it too difficult to read.

I liked this book in spite of the protagonist’s language, too rude for my taste. There were paragraphs in which you only read swear words, and although it must be admitted that we teenagers don’t speak correctly, we don’t spend all day swearing. I’ve read a lot of dystopian books, but I found this one to be the most critical of them all. As I was reading, I realized how much reality matches what is narrated in this book.

The sensation that Diary of a Teenage Girl exudes is above all that of being in front of a «work in progress», whose object of artistic work is life itself, which seems to have found its personal language through the mixture of text, illustration and comic.

«You have to explain to them that body odor can be unpleasant for oneself and for others. A person who smells bad continuously generates behaviors of rejection towards him,» explains Prado. He advises approaching the conversation from the point of view of normality. A ‘you smell bad’, if explanations are necessary, can be hurtful. So it’s best if we start by saying that we all do, we all smell, but that the way to avoid it is by showering and also by maintaining proper intimate hygiene. «In the case of girls, for example, it is good to talk to them about their menstruation and about the hygiene that should be maintained at that time for two reasons: odor and health.»

The psychologist rules out that the adolescent may be discouraged or suffer from depression just because they don’t want to shower. «This behavior is part of the adult depressive symptomatology, but it cannot be extended to childhood and adolescence,» says Prado. While adults tend to stop doing things they feel like doing, showering, painting, shaving or going outside, in childhood and adolescence depression usually manifests itself in hyperactive behavior, irritability or anger.
