Joan Reid lives in London, England. She is both a microbiologist and a sexual health promotional speaker. This makes her uniquely qualified to discuss all things about science and the body. Joan wanted to give her daughter a no holds barred handbook detailing what puberty and the start of her period was all about. She wanted to give her advice and tips that would help her daughter make an easier transition from that of a child to becoming a woman. After reading the book, her daughter challenged her to publish it for all girls. And so “Girls it’s Time for a Change “came into being. Joan hopes that girls around the world will use her book, to prepare themselves for all that puberty and their period will bring. Knowing that the changes in mind and body, are a necessary part of growing up, and hopes that “Girls it’s Time for a Change” will help them to fully appreciate and love what being a woman is all about.
