By the time Dilvin Yasa left home, she'd already dated a string of bad men, fallen prey to countless fashion faux pas and suffered too many awkward sex talks with her parents. Determined that the next generation should learn from her own experiences, she wrote a series of letters for her young daughter to read when she reaches the eve of adulthood - sharing the things that only a mother can teach her daughter.
Honest, moving and witty, this is both an accessible parenting book and an entertaining self-help guide for young women, exploring everything from picking the right bra to self-confidence, the dating game and flying the nest.
Drawing on her years of experience as a journalist for women's magazines and sharing some hilarious anecdotes from her own coming of age, Dilvin Yasa provides frank and useful advice on the painful, joyful and always interesting journey into becoming an adult.
This is the book for mums who want to share with their daughters and for daughters who can't always share with their mums.
Dilvin Yasa is the features director of Cosmo Bride, Cosmo Pregnancy and Cosmo Health, and her articles have appeared in countless magazines from madison, Harper's Bazaar and Real Living, to the kind you buy in shrink-wrapped bags. Dilvin lives in Sydney with her husband and daughter.
