This book includes a detailed index for looking up whatever topics concern you, as well as a list of other helpful books and websites. How cool is that?
The book had several light entries such as the suggestion to clean your room before the school year starts "will clear your mind and get you ready to jump into a new school year". But there are many other entries of a more serious nature that I didn't appreciate the author's guidance.
One entry on flirting encouraged girls to flirt and be proud of it, including a line that she regularly flirted with every guy even when she had a boyfriend.
On drinking - while she does include good suggestions such as Be Careful!, control yourself when drinking and don't go over your limit as well as a list of possible negative consequences of drinking she also makes light of the situation by stating "if you puke you've had too much."
Sex- She spends seven days in a row talking about sex and while I again appreciate some of her advice "you are your own person - follow your own schedule and your own comfort level." She also talks about writing a commitment to yourself and listing reasons for that commitment but she suggests you revisit this commitment as you grow up and change it with your new decisions. To me, it implies you will be more comfortable with different sexual actions as you grow up and your boundaries will lower.Read more ›
