Grade 6–10—Dower has crafted a fun-filled, well-designed book chock-full of facts, trivia, and advice. Beginning with a letter that urges girls not to read the book from start to finish, but rather to savor the entries at random, the author includes the silly ("Menu of the World Weird"), the practical ("How to Write a Thank You note"), the mystical ("Phrenology anyone?") and the sage (tips on going green). Where's a great hiding spot for your secret journal? What's the deadliest diamond ever? Which talisman will bring you the most luck? These questions and more are answered. The design and illustrations are spot-on. In what could be a very busy text, the layout complements the words beautifully, creating a visually appealing package. The "For Girls Only SuperQuiz" is a tween/teen version of Myers-Briggs Type Indicator that's just plain fun. Also included is a bonus Tarot card, secreted between the pages of fortune-telling and luck entries. While the book does not address anything new or different, it stands out for its witty presentation.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta

“For Girls Only is not the normal everyday type book . . . I would give it a five out of five. I couldn't put it down because it was so interesting . . . I recommend this book to girls who are in need of a break of long books and want a fun book.” Jordan from DogEared, National Geographic Kids’ book blog
