Not for good girls -- their ears would burn at Rosie's woeful tale of her own deflowering; not for good girls either, Rosie's familiarity with the intimate aspects of male anatomy; and most certainly not for good girls, her deliciously pedagogical tales of matters ranging from Brazilian bikini waxes to marriage proposals to meeting one's in-laws.
With a wink and a sly nod to The Tales of Scheherazade, Rosie's tales are a cautionary compendium of necessary knowledge about relationships, careers, and of course, the right shoes. Wood employs a sparkling wit and a rueful eye as she maps terrain that all women will recognize. Whether their lot is heartbreak or wedding bells, the girls who parade through these pages have one thing in common. They want what we all want -- someone to love, a chance at happiness, a reward for hard work -- and with Rosie as their intrepid guide, there's no denying that their odds have improved immeasurably.
Rosie's advice is not for the shy or retiring, but timidity has no place when the world is waiting to be your oyster and the apple is longing to be bitten. Philandering husbands, jealous colleagues, and wayward partners would do well to right their course or risk becoming fair game for Rosie's impish sass and indignant ire. This addictively readable book is sure to find a home in the hands of girls both naughty and nice. (Holiday 2007 Selection)
