Popular advice expert Dr. Gilda Carle gives teen girls the lowdown about finding the right guy and staying true to yourself.
In easy language that speaks directly to girls' questions, Dr. Gilda reminds us what we girls should always remember, takes the mystery out of how boys operate, and spells out the qualities of a good boyfriend. Divided into two parts -- "What Girls Want" and "What Girls Need" -- Carle's book lays out the rules for "Loyal Girlfriends" (both having them and being one) and finding a "Cool Boyfriend," along with giving advice on being "an It Girl," "understanding guys," and "creating your own excitement." Carle also packs her book with helpful letters from girls who've sought her expertise, reader quizzes, and her famous "Gilda Grams" (one-line "feel good statements"), and she concludes with a "How to Attract the Good Guys" section that brings all the chapters together with a simple lesson: "Be self-centered rather than boy-centered."
Dr. Gilda's guide is a handy friend to have on the shelf. Girls frustrated by dud boyfriends will find her words inspiring and enlightening, and they'll be quick to share her advice with friends. Although some of the references to popular media are a touch out of date in this edition, the good doctor's words ring as true and clear as ever. A welcome prescription for healthy dating!
