My review:

This is a wonderful guide with tons of great advice!  It's especially great for girls and teens that might not have had a good role model or someone teaching them helpful things to know, such as how to introduce yourself or how to budget.  This book covered pretty much every aspect of life, from guys to work to money to food to fixing stuff.  I wanted to review it because I figured there would be some items I could use help with, especially in the fix-it area.  There was a lot of great information!  I liked how each chapter was very clearly laid out with what you would need, the steps to achieve your goal and an interesting trivia fact or piece of wisdom.  There were also interesting true stories about real people at the beginning of each section.  I would highly recommend this book for tween and teen girls!

I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
