Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Robertson Mason
How do you talk to a girl? There are grown men who still do not know the answer to this question, but the nine-year-old author of this book is ready to tell you. Some of his advice is right on, such as "To get a girl to like you, talk to her and get to know her." Some advice should be true, but often is not, such as "Girls always like smart boys." Some advice is just plain cute, such as "Your mom likes you to be clean and she is a girl." If you are an elementary school boy, this book's advice might help you catch a girl, but the author cautions readers to aim only for getting her to like you. Love, he says, should come later…like in middle school. For other readers, this book is just plain cute. The author knows more than his years would lead you to suspect. As an advice book for older kids, it probably will not work, but for younger kids (or older ones who want a smile) it is a sweet gift. One piece of advice that would work for all ages? "Whatever happens, don't let it make you crazy." Reviewer: Heather Robertson Mason

Read an Excerpt

How to Talk to Girls

Chapter One

The Facts of Life

Sometimes, you get a girl to like you, then she ditches you.

Life is hard, move on!

Tip: About 73 percent of regular girls ditch boys; 98 percent of pretty girls ditch boys.

Or sometimes it just doesn't work out.

I had a crush on a girl in preschool.

Then my family had to move, so I had to let her wash out of my mind.

You also have to be aware that girls win most of the arguments and have most of the power. If you know that now, things might be easier.

Finally, if you try for too many girls, you will have jealousy issues and might end up with nobody. It is really best to go for just one.

If you do get a girl to like you, that is victory.

Winning victory is a dream for most boys, but it is very rare.

What does it take to win victory?

Read on and find out!

Ok I have to admit this is a cute story but don't buy it, it's not worth it. You're better off asking someone who knows this kinda stuff. People say "Never trust a skinny chef" don't trust a single match maker. I got that from Shark Tank, awesome show by the ways.

You see... Ive never read the book, well probably because I'm a girl, but why can't anyone write a book, " How to talk to boys" ? I've seen every other How-to book, but not how to talk to boys. Its just a suggestion. Thanks.

I can't believe this was published. In my mind this book does not "win victory." Looking back over my childhood, I realize I have made some mistakes, but none were ever as bad as having something as ridiculous as this published. Grevens is very pretentious in all that he hopes to achieve and helps to further negative stereotypes about the roles of males and females in society. Who is the target audience of this book? I can't imagine most kids would want to read this and how many adults would want to take advice on finding a partner from someone whose balls have yet to descend? Good luck on finding "victory" with this book, but don't take my word for it.

This book is funny but the methods are not good. If you want some good information on how to get a girl to like you is that you just tell them or become there friend. Trust me im a guy and those things work. Im 15 and have 2 girlfriends allready because i told them how i feel or became there friend and learnd the things that they like. The good things about the book is that it is funny. He is nine or eight and these things are not going on in there mind.

For whatever reason my lil brother wuz readin this...im a girl. If u honestly want to kno how to talk to a girl then all u have to do is juz tell us whats on ur mind. And i dont kno about other girls but to ME the part about cutting bak on sugar is plain stupid im pretty hyper myself so i like guys that are always hyper and jokin around.

I mever read this but it seems like an insult to girls I mean how would a 9 year old boy know about girls nrains and what they see in a guy?
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I HATE this book... cant anybody tell that his parent wrote this? What boy would rather write about girls than play flag football or basketball with his friends? Seriously!
