    I Also Recommend:

    The Epitome of Lovely.

    I really loved this book when I was a Pesky Meddling Girl, and even though I'm older than the group this book is aimed at, I still love it. I hunt down unused copies to do over and over again, and I still turn to it for advice and inspiration.<BR/><BR/>If you, too, find that you're past the age to be a PMG, check out what I consider to be the grown-up version of this book, the recommendation to the left. :)<BR/><BR/><--- Love it!

    Brandt really knows how to make a girl feel good about herself!

    I had seen this book in a magazine and was dying to read it. I finally got around to it and let me tell you, it was worth the wait! This book is so uplifting and full of fun ideas! Jennifur really knew what she was doing when she wrote this book. No girl should be without it!!!

    It is a really good tool to use when you need to refer back to someone who has been there

    This book really does tell you all that you need to know. It is stated about a lot of things that helped me with some of my past relationships, and hopefully will help me in the one I am in right now. I saw what I really needed to look for in people, and also how to act around people I am just getting to know, but am attracted to.
