Reviews

"Really? An etiquette book for teens? Yes, really, you butt-faced jerk! See, that right there is 'dickish behavior,' a timeless plague for which Doherty has a cabinet full of cures. The atmosphere is pure Dick and Jane: fussy early-reader prose married to bland clip-art-style illustrations starring a deadpan boy and girl. Through these old-fangled characters, Doherty fires absurd twenty-first-century zingers that happen to be really, really, really funny. (When was the last time you LOL'd at a nonfiction book?) Droll humor is one thing, but does Doherty deliver substance? Shockingly, she does, offering teens blunt, no-nonsense advice on the adult world that awaits them....Given the emphasis on roommates, office parties, and alcohol, this is clearly the gift book for next year's high-school and college grads. After all, we all need the occasional reminder that peeing in the shower is wrong." * Booklist (Starred Review) * "Amen! - a parenting book for crummy parents like me. It's not so much a parenting book, per se - no, it really is an etiquette book. But the tone and language used is straightforward and speaks to teens and young adults in a manner that they understand. And all that stuff you learned in parenting class? It's back, and much more applicable than you thought. . . . The book is rated for 18+, but honest to God, I'll let my 12-year-old daughter read it. There's nothing inappropriate in terms of language or subject matter, I think, for middle schoolers, and frankly, that's where the seeds of dickishness are usually planted." * Chicago Now *
