Attention, girls looking for a few tips on avoiding life's little pratfalls: You've found the rule book! In Mindy Morgenstern's wise and witty The Real Rules for Girls, all of life's necessary directions have finally been crystallized into a no-nonsense, hilarious-to-read guide.
From romance to family to money, Morgenstern's book lays it all on the line with pizzazz. Chapters with rules like "There is no Happily Ever After" and "Everyone's family is as freaky as yours" explode myths, while "Don't screw up a good friendship for a guy" and "You can't follow your dreams if you can't pay for the gas" give sound advice for living. Among the other many prizewinning pointers are "Learn how to work a room," "A good bluff can get you anywhere," and "Take a 2nd look at the dweeb."
The Real Rules for Girls is a must-have for teen girls. Cool extras like an introduction by Courtney Cox Arquette and quotes from celebs such as Janis Joplin add to Morgenstern's guidance, while funny retro pictures and design make it eye-catching. Packed with good ol' common sense for the 21st-century girl, this handbook should help make that crazy journey called life a little bit easier. (Matt Warner)
