The S Word: A Boy’s Guide to Sex, Puberty and Growing Up uses humour and sensitivity. Growing up is tough, especially the bit between being a boy and being a man. It’s tough because so much is changing at once. Your body, your emotions, your interests and the way other people see you. The way you look at girls, and the way they look at you. Plus there’s those dreams. James Roy presents a book that will help any young man navigate the confusing minefield that lies between boyhood and manhood. With some help from his friend ‘Richard the Wise’ he talks frankly about sex, puberty and relationships, and shows that becoming a man doesn’t have to scare the pants off you.
