Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
In this information-packed book the author gathers advice from everyone and anyone. Professional women as well as ordinary teens are consulted for answers to dilemmas that everyone faces every day. For example, how do students deal with rumors, bullies and math? These are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the issues covered in this exciting guidebook on how to journey through the tumultuous teenage years. The touted Web site is a little dull but it does allow you to e-mail the author so that you might be included in her new book. A definite purchase for all YA collections, this should give confidence to readers who want to know what to do and how to do it in even the most awkward situations. It has superb advice for females everywhere. KLIATT Codes: JS*—Exceptional book, recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2002, Random House, Prima, 253p. index.,
— Sherri Forgash Ginsberg
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-Teenage girls have all kinds of concerns from seemingly trivial ones such as how to say "hi" to more momentous occasions like the first job interview. Along with these concerns, this book covers a wide range of topics with an overall intent of guiding girls toward becoming well-balanced young women. Successful people of all ages are tapped for advice. Hip and chatty in style, GirlWise encourages a self-confident, independent attitude that includes being considerate of others. As part of fostering healthy self-esteem, it tells how to create one's own style without becoming a fashion zombie, how to appreciate and take sensible care of one's body, and how to deal with rejection. While body image is discussed, it is more in the vein of self-acceptance, diet, and exercise-this book does not venture into the realm of sexual issues. Readers can also find out how to unclog a toilet, change a diaper, do laundry, and start a band. The last two chapters, "Be Caring" and "Be Conscious," point the way toward attitudes and actions that result in a truly mature person. This is a silly, serious, and totally fun book for those who want to take charge of their lives and evolve into first-class, well-rounded adults.-Sheila Shoup, Fairfax County Public Library, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Interesting book, and to the person who said it was all common sense. People need to learn about common sense because now days, it isnt that common anymore. And i am a thirteen cynical genius girl who knows what she is talking about.

    well parts

    Parts of this story were goo but it talked about job interviews and getting prommotwd. The only helpful stuff for girls around 11 and 12 was the first paragraph. Te rest was quite dull anhard to follow. I recoomend for girls over 14 and can actually get a job. Ottherqisw a waste of money.

    What every teenage girl needs!

    I always said I would never want to relive my teenage years. Now that I have read this book, I would love to go back. This book could have saved me from a lot embarassment and depression. It is a must have for any teenage girl today. It's like having a user manual for teens. If you are a parent of a teen girl, you have to get this for her. She will love you for it. It answers the question every teen has, "Am I the only one that feels this way?" or "Does this only happen to me?".
