Notes: A 14-year-old girl named Anne writes, "what if you have crushes on girls? Twice now I have liked girls, one was 19 and one was my age ... I don't like to talk to my mother about this ... now can you control yourself?" Mrs. Goodman replies that "Having crushes on girls is merely part of this business of growing up – and is as normal as breathing! ... Do not be ashamed of liking girls ... Shortly, you will find your interests will turn toward boys ..."
