Gr 8 Up-Girls will find this honest title helpful and entertaining. It's filled with practical tips and sound advice. The six chapters-"Romance," "Work," "Social Life," "Family," "Money," and "Life Tips"-each contain a snappy one-liner. For example, in the romance section, this gem appears: "The football captains of today are the burger jockeys of tomorrow." Told in an up-to-date, breezy, first-person voice, the book offers the author's personal anecdotes and life lessons hard won. The information is presented in a nonjudgmental, down-to-earth tone. Clever patter and good advice aside, the real highlights are the wonderfully kitsch black-and-white photographs that recollect the `50s and '60s. The creative layout draws readers' eyes to all sides and corners of the pages. The design is reminiscent of Barbara Kruger's provocative work-thought-provoking statements superimposed on mundane photographs. A delight from start to finish.-Elaine Baran, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
