Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Jane Buckingham's Modern Girl's Guide to Life was a primer about basics that tackled the question, "What should a girl do?" Her new book zeroes in on all those embarrassing moments and sticky situations that can turn the day of even a teen idol into a six-alarm disaster. You know those moments: You suffer a clothing malfunction right before party takeoff. You just pushed the "send' button and now you realize you've made One Great Mistake. You learn that your best friend's husband is cheating on her. Your relatives are bickering over the name of your baby. And on and on and on. You buy it; your girlfriends will borrow it.

“A lifesaver…. [The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sticky Situations is] the paperback personification of a BFF, and you won’t want to leave home without it.”

    This is a fun well written reference book

    This is a fun well written reference book with concise answers to specific embarrassing, often silent screaming scenarios facing females (and by extrapolation of relational implication males) in modern society. The topics run the gamut of nine sticky chapters (love; weddings; home; family; parties, beauty fashion, and shopping; work; and on the go) and one dedicated section to the Icky. The topics include a vast range. For instance, Jane Buckingham provides short treatise on giving a toast in public when public speaking requires adult diapers to social internet commentary on your date mate to secret physical issues that range the gamut to having kids at home, etc. Whether it is the "Sticky" or the "Icky" Ms. Buckingham provides easy to follow and apply advice on how to survive and often thrive during a social tsunami that might feel yucky and sticky.
