Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Beth E. Andersen
Embarrasing Moments is a charming, light-hearted effort to lead girls through those ghastly (and not-so-ghastly) social situations that register off the Public Humiliation Richter Scale. Blatt provides great coaching for in-the-moment rapid responses and offers coping mechanisms for handling the agonizing post-event emotional discomfort. In addition, she puts forth liberal infusions of reassurance that these sorts of things happen to everybody. Topics covered are the obvious—menstrual blood leaking through white pants, passing gas, younger siblings blurting out secrets in front of boyfriends—and the not-so-obvious—walking in on a grandparent in the bathroom, eating alone in the cafeteria, stage fright. Using self-tests, checklists, suggested Web sites, and boxed one-line comebacks to quickly recover, Blatt is adept at helping girls put these "I want to disappear" episodes in short-term and long-term perspective. Colorful cartoon illustrations, liberally sprinkled throughout this small guide, are relevant and amusing. The advice here is so down-to-earth and wide-ranging that even young adults in their twenties could benefit from her commonsense approach. Other titles in the series are The Teen Girl's Gotta-Have-It Guide to Embarrassing Moments and The Teen Girl's Gotta-Have-It Guide to Social Survival.
Children's Literature - Denise W. McGrain
This is a great book/guide for any teenage girl. There are all kinds of lists and test inside that will keep her on track and will help solve or at least assist in those most "embarrassing moments." It will allow her to take a look at herself, her family, and those close to her and help explain ways of dealing with them and their embarrassing situations that spill over onto her, without hurting them or causing permanent damage. One of the things that I like about this guide is how Jessica shows any teen girl how to turn an uncomfortable moment into a funny moment without causing more embarrassment. This is a great book that any girl will like and should experience. This is a "must-have" that would be a valuable item to add to a reading collection.
School Library Journal

Gr 6-10
These well-designed additions to the burgeoning shelves of tween and teen self-help guides have crisp, witty writing and saucy color illustrations. Boys covers the usual territory from knowing who you like and why to knowing your flirting style, figuring out how to give the perfect gift, staying true, and breaking up. The second title offers solutions for a variety of situations and suggests using humor whenever possible, encouraging girls to take social gaffes (and themselves) less seriously. Both books have a few fill-in pages and quizzes.
