Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Robertson Mason
What do you do when you are fourteen and your parents do not trust you? Or your best friend suddenly isn't? Or the cute guy next to you in science might like-like you, but you are not sure what to do about it? This book aims to help girls figure out the answers to such sticky questions as these. From the creators of "Girl's Life" magazine, the book is chock full of tips on dealing with parents, maintaining strong friendships, and generally being the best person you can be. Many different formats are used: Q and A, quizzes, lists, and short passages to name a few. The advice is usually solid and would make sense to follow. For example, it tells girls to wait for the right time to talk to parents about important issues. If you want to extend your curfew, asking while running out the door on the way to school might not get the result you want. When dealing with boys, the focus is on maintaining self respect rather than getting the guy to like you. While it touches on beauty and fashion, there is more information about being a strong, independent girl rather than being a pretty, well-liked one. At times the authors resort to slang to make them sound more hip, using words like "?rents" and "sitch," but it comes off sounding forced. Overall, though, the book gives solid advice in an easy to read manner that will draw girls in. Reviewer: Heather Robertson Mason
