School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-The colorful cartoons attempt to offset the dry content of this book. The advice that it imparts is common sense and most girls will already know what it has to tell them. A few interesting checklists and articles are included, as is a rather scary listing of the four types of teachers that might leave readers wondering if there are any good instructors in middle school. Discussions of safety issues and the library do not appear. This title is likely to be a shelf-sitter.-Kim Donius, Alfred-Almond Central School, Almond, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
