Many of the young girls who read Secret Girls Stuff wrote to Margaret Clark, so she has now produced a new book to cover the concerns they raised. This book contains material of a sensitive nature which some readers may find disturbing. Age 15 plus.
After the enormous success of 'Secret Girls' Stuff' comes this fabulous sequel from one of Australia's most recognised and read writers for young people. Since the publication of 'Secret Girls' Stuff', the number of letters, emails and faxes Margaret receives have quadrupled. All of Margaret's books have encouraged or inspired readers to contact her, however, 'Secret Girls' Stuff' pushed this reader/writer relationship to new heights. Margaret is friend, counsellor, listener, mentor - to so many young readers. With a pile of correspondence reaching her ceiling, Margaret thought it was time to produce the follow-up to the original title that had reached so many. In 'More Secret Girls' Stuff' there are more pleas for help, more embarrassing stories, more confessions, more problems, and more shared thoughts, fears and dreams than ever before.
