Pulse: 60-Second Critic: Taking Care of Your “Girls”

Weiss — Philly Mag “top doc,” founder of Breastcancer.org, director of breast radiation oncology at Lankenau Hospital, and veritable breast guru — paired with her teenage daughter to write this reader-friendly guide to all things, well, boob-related, answering questions from more than 3,000 young women on everything from development to bra fit to perceived abnormalities to, of course, breast size. Between Weiss’s expert medical knowledge and Friedman’s endearingly open retelling of her own experiences (­margins are peppered with her “girl to girl” takes), the book is a smart, entertaining go-to for moms looking to steer their daughters toward good (breast) health.
