Overview

Tired of wandering through the uncharted territory of guys and dating? Are you in need of the ultimate roadmap to this foreign landscape? Want to get pointed in the right direction by someone other than your mother or your trusty (but inexperienced) friend?        

When it comes to guys, relationship expert Julie Taylor has all the answers — and she'll give 'em to you straight. Think of her as an older sister (a fun older sister) who will tell it like it is, one who knows that you aren't a little kid anymore, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Julie will guide you through the highs and lows of a killer crush, help you conquer first-date jitters, advise you when it is time to promote him to official "boyfriend" status, reveal the realities of a summer fling, and more. Plus, each chapter ends with a quiz to help you determine the answers to a variety of questions essential for any girl with a one-way ticket to Guyville, such as:

Who's your dream date?
Is he second date material?
Are you ready to commit?
Is it time to give him the boot?        

And if the stud turns out to be a dud, Julie preps you on when and how to dump him or how to survive when you're the one getting dumped. After all, they're just guys, and dating should be fun! So, read up....Next stop, Guyville!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Our Review
What do you love most in girls' magazines? The quizzes, right? The Girls' Guide to Guys, Julie Taylor's new guide to high school dating, is stuffed with fun, informative quizzes: "How Major Is Your Crush?" "What Kind of Flirt Are You?" "Is It Time to Give Him the Boot?" They may sound goofy, but after taking these tests you'll find you know your dating self a lot better.

And knowing yourself better is what The Girls' Guide to Guys is all about. Julie's book offers friendly, simple advice for each person; whether you're shy, blatantly hot-to-trot, or longing for a little solo time, there's some useful news in this book. It's like having a college-age friend who offers suggestions just for you. Instead of reading generic dating advice that's supposed to work for everyone, you can take Julie's quizzes to find out what'll work in your life. You'll know when to ask your crush out, how to make dumb dates lively, and which boy might make a more than adequate boyfriend for you. The Girls' Guide to Guys takes you through all the steps -- from the first glimmerings of interest through the tenuous going-out phase -- with easy understanding and friendly support. And lots of quizzes!

VOYA
If boys are truly from another universe, then girls need all the help they can get in understanding this seemingly alien species. Teen magazine writer and self-proclaimed "older sister" Taylor has written a concise, frank, and accessible book that addresses the issues surrounding teenage relationships without the condescending, distant language of a self-help text. This guide is divided into twelve sections that cover such issues as how to flirt effectively, the different steps of physical intimacy with a boy, and how to break up with—and get dumped by—someone without losing your mind. Taylor speaks to her audience as a confidante, sprinkling references to contemporary fashion, music, and hotspots. Each section ends with a quiz for the reader to "learn a little bit about [herself] in the process." The interactive format includes bulleted lists, sidebar tidbits, top ten lists, and appealing clip art. The only drawback here is the miniscule sidebar devoted to same-sex relationships; a portion of the "Majorly Crushed" section might have discussed same-sex dynamics in more depth. The addition of a glossary explaining certain terms and biological vocabulary would have empowered readers further. Taylor has succeeded in writing a book that teachers, parents, and young girls—and boys!—can benefit from reading. In an age of accelerated teen sexuality, girls need reliable references on the topic. Straightforward and humorous, this title will fly off the shelves if properly promoted in both school and public libraries. Index. Illus. VOYA CODES: 4Q 5P J S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Every YA (who reads) was dying to read it yesterday; Junior High,defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2000, Three Rivers Press/Crown, 224p, Trade pb. Ages 13 to 18. Reviewer: Beth Gilbert SOURCE: VOYA, June 2001 (Vol. 24, No. 2)
KLIATT
This is a mixture of fluff (loads of quizzes, list of places to boy-watch) and serious advice on subjects like date rape and STDs, with hotline numbers. Taylor, a magazine writer and author, covers types of guys, getting crushes, flirting, dating, dealing with bad behavior (from being stood up to physical abuse), serious relationships, the physical side of relationships (although the author "totally" recommends waiting to have sex, she also includes advice on birth control), communication, summer flings and cyber and long-distance relationships, breaking up, getting dumped, and the benefits of being single. Younger teenage girls in particular will eat this up. For public libraries. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2000, Random House/Three Rivers, 220p, illus, index, 21cm, 00-029879, $11.00. Ages 13 to 18.

    A bible of all things guy-related

    From the very beginning of this book, I knew it would be great. Of course, the introduction provided me with this information when Julie Taylor explained that she hated it when 'forty-year olds tell you what they think you want to hear trying to be hip with old slang'. And Taylor avoids this problem quite well, giving you the facts in a fresh style that sounds like a real person. Her book is chock full of great tips about crushes, flirting, and many other things. Stir in the bonus of a quiz after every chapter and ~voila~ ther you have a great book
