Emily Andre has revealed she’s “scared” about embarking on a big new project.
The 33-year-old NHS doctor is set to release a brand new book next month to help teenagers and children going through puberty.
Her book, titled Growing Up For Boys: Everything You Need To Know, is due out in May, and ahead of launch, Emily has admitted she’s quite nervous about her new venture.
The star has already written a book for young girls going through puberty, but she felt it was important to do the same for boys, as they too can have incredibly tough times during the life-changing phase of their young lives.
writing in her latest OK! magazine Column, Emily shared, “The response to the girls book was amazing and I was so happy.

“It can feel pretty scary to put yourself out there and open yourself up to criticism.
“I was worried about what would happen if people didn’t like the book or didn’t get it.
“A lot of this came from my own experience as a teenager, so it felt like a pretty big risk to put it out there. But I couldn’t have hoped for a better answer so I’m keeping my fingers crossed the same with the boys book.”
As Emily wrote and researched for her new book, she realized she needed a male perspective on things.
And so she called for help from her husband Peter, 47, who shared an insight into his own puberty journey back then.
Emily shared, “I realized it was important to get a male perspective, so one of the people who helped me was Pete.
“He gave me a glimpse of what it was like for him to grow up. Even things like shaving and knowing when you’re ready to start have been so helpful.
“I hope the book will help spark a conversation or start a conversation so boys can ask about things they might be worried about.
“In addition to the physical side, we also address psychological changes and encourage boys to speak up when they are struggling with their emotions or mental health.”
Emily’s brand new book is due out next month.
