Start Talking: A Girl’s Guide for You and Your Mom About Health, Sex & Whatever by Mary Jo Rapini and Janine Sherman is a Q&A book for moms and girls that will help them to start talking about puberty, periods, love, sex and relationships.

This is an older book that is a little bit out of date, but it is useful in regards to that it has some great ideas for starting conversations ie ideas for both mums and daughters who might be struggling to talk about something.  It provides information about periods, how to look after your new body, what happens when visiting the doctor, sexually transmitted infections, contraception, body image, eating disorders, mental health and more.
