Propelled into puberty

These things kick-started me into puberty:

"Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin
"Ballroom Blitz" by Sweet
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Did any books or music kick-start you into puberty? Did anything else?

No, puberty hit me when I was only 11 and I was in 5th grade. I was NOT happy about this. I felt it meant that I was no longer a child and was not allowed to read any children's books any more. So I slammed my way through Mary Poppins, Wind in the Willows, etc., all the classics I'd neglected to read and could cram into my schedule.

But mood-wise I was fine, and didn't have any troubles with depression until 7th grade and junior high. I have a strong hunch this was situational and had nothing to do with hormones.

If I were dictator of the universe, I would delay menarche until age 14. 11 is ridiculous, and some kids even get it at age 9! Poor babies!

So, no, the fun caterwauling of Zep was many years away.

WHAT?!?!?! If any adults gave you that idea, I would like to find them and rip out their eyeballs.

My periods started a year or two before I began to recognize sexual feelings, and when I say "kick-started into puberty," I mean the latter.
