embarrassed. If it just fills your head with questions, you're not alone. Here's what some tweens asked IML about puberty:

Kristen, 10, wants to know: "What changes can I expect to happen? When can I expect them? Will I need to be prepared? Will I feel sick during the time? Do I have to tell my friends when these changes happen?"

Samantha, 12, had these questions: "At what age will I get my period, and what if it comes at a REALLY bad time? When will I ever grow breasts? And what if I don't want to grow up?"

Questions like these are totally normal! Like with most things, if you know the facts, it all gets a lot easier. So IML has put together this section for you to get all the info you need about this really important time in your life. Read on!
