Eight times world-record breaking hula-hoop star Marawa Ibrahim was told that she was too chubby during her teenage years to succeed as a performer. Today she is one of the most solicited circus performers worldwide, having worked with fashion power-houses Diesel and Kenzo. Contained within these pages are 50 lessons, anecdotes and stories about the changes Marawa experienced in her own body during puberty, written in consultation with Doctor Janice K Hillman. The first book in a new series about growing up has been written for young girls becoming women, who need not feel alone on their journey to womanhood.
