The plot: Whether you're madly in love or still looking, you'll dig this collection of stories and quotes (celebs weigh in, too!) Why you'll love it: You'll get info on everything from first love to why singlehood rocks.
School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-This companion to The Girls' Book of Friendship (2001) and The Girls' Book of Wisdom (1999, both Little, Brown) deals with finding true love and keeping it strong. The quotes come from both male and female celebrities and dignitaries, while the stories are by unknown writers. Good, interesting "Fascinating Facts" end each chapter. Readers will enjoy the sage advice and sigh at the bliss recounted as they are guided through all stages of love, from the first stirrings of a crush to a breakup, and they will return to these pages when they are looking for inspiration or comfort. Although nothing new is presented, this well-put-together collection would make a nice pick-me-up.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

Chapter 1

Crazy Little Thing

The word "love"-as in the romantic kind-brings to mind crazy crushes and sweet kisses, mushy valentines and cozy snuggling, happily growing old together. But what exactly is love?

Some people think it's the experience of being instantly smitten with someone. Others believe it's a state of caring that develops between people over the years . Some see it as a deeper shade of friendship,unconditional regard for another, or the willingness to protect the person from harm at all costs.

As you can see, trying to fit love into one handy definition is a challenge. That's OK, because in order to really understand it, you've got to experience it.

My name is Andi Chrisman and one of my poems is in this book. I was shocked that I could be included in a book with so many great celebrities and others talking about how wonderful love is! If you have not read this book, I recommend it--not because I'm included, but because it helps you find the words to describe a feeling that is so amazing, that you sometimes can't even begin to describe and need assistance.

Catherine Dee's brilliant blend of quotes, poetry, stories, advice and honest questions are a must-read for every girl falling in or out of love. Everyone's heart is different¿yet each can be touched by these pages. Just reading this book brought me on a journey through every emotion and love that I've ever felt. This is the big sister that you always wish you had when it comes to matters of the heart.

I purchased The Girls' Book of Wisdom (I have this one myself!) for both my nieces for Christmas. Now one of them is about to have a birthday so I'm sending her The Girls' Book of Love and The Girls' Book of Friendship The whole series is great.

This book would make a great gift. I loved reading it myself, but it's also an excellent gift for the young women on my Christmas list. It's fun to read -- organized in an easy and fun-to-read format. I especially loved the parts where men commented on love. It's important for girls to know how men feel too. Multi-dimensional look at love from a girls' perspective. A great complement to the Girls' Book of Wisdom and the Girls' Book of Friendship written by the same author.

As a busy bookstore manager, I had no intention of sitting here and reading The Girls' Book of Love from cover to cover. But I couldn't help it!! This is yet another excellent book from Catherine Dee.

This book has everything a girl could want to keep herself focused and empowered¿whether she's in love, out of love, or just in between. ¿Dr. Gilda Carle, Ph.D., author of He's Not All That! and Teen Talk with Dr. Gilda: A Girl's Guide to Dating (March, 2003)

The Girls' Book of Love balances the cultural hype about love with reality, presenting quotes, facts, and opinions that will help girls who (like most adults) are trying to figure out how to stay true to themselves while loving someone else. A truly fun, informative, and enlightening read for preteens and young women.
