The Guide to Navigating Sex & Education Every Teenager Needs Is Here

Nia and the Numbers Game is an entertaining, sensitive and factual guide for teen girls who are facing decisions about education and sex.”– Haywood Smith, New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Author

Growing up is a confusing, and often lonely experience, and it doesn’t help when it’s nearly impossible to find answers to all our questions. Shining a much-needed light into this darkness is Nia (Swahili for purpose), whose journey to adulthood is wrought with all the struggles of adolescence. Nia’s troubles with her divorced and rule-oriented parents, entering puberty, her relationships with both friends and boyfriends, and her academic ambitions are a lens through which readers can understand their own personal development.
