Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

One of Parenting Magazine's Top Ten Best Gifts for Kids

“Dower has crafted a fun-filled, well-designed book chock-full of facts, trivia, and advice . . . it stands out for its witty presentation.”—School Library Journal

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

I bought this book for my 10 year old daughter, and she LOVES it, it gives tons of Info, on all things girl, from Makeup to sports, career moves, and passing notes in school, I bought it for her in December, and she has not given it up, she is always going back to it. This book actually sparks dinner time conversation, It was a great way to find a little extra to bond with her through this book!

Format: Hardcover
I got this book a few weeks ago. I loved it!I really enjoy the laura dower books. When I was nine and ten, I read the Madison Finn series. I loved the authors creative test and her style of writing. I was phsyched when I heard she was writing this book.

ABOUT THE BOOK

This book is informative, but at the same time, fun!
I am always surprised at whats on the next page.I never get tired of reading it.
It has really cool ideas, too.
The "How-to`s" are one of my favorites.
Learn how to paint toenails, read about women in sports, or start your first career. This book will satisfy any girl from the tomboy to the girly girl.

SOME FRIENDLY ADVICE
Okay, so your convinced into getting the book. When you get it, don`t sit down and read the thing IN ORDER from cover to cover! Save a little for each night. Look forward to it. Pick a number between one and 300 and start reading. Most of all, MAKE IT FUN.

HERE`S TO YOU, LAURA DOWER

Thanks for writing this great book for girls. We all appreciate it, that`s for sure. It`s witty, interesting, and just plain amazing!

Here's what I think: This could be so much better than it is! Compare it to the boys version. The boys version is so cool and adventurous. This book is telling girls that what they really want to do is paint toenails and have slumber parties. Why? Girls can wrestle alligators and find buried treasure...I feel like this book is reinforcing stereotypes and encouraging girls to be sedentary.

I bought this for my 12-yr-old granddaughter who is an advid reader. She found the book interesting and involved her whole family in one of the activities mentioned in the book. It was a good choice for her.

The book touches on such a wide variety of topics, it's hard for someone not to find something of interest! My niece has not put this book down since she opened it ( a couple of days early). From the game suggestions, to the great women of history, she is learning something new each day. I highly recommend this for ANY pre-teen to tween!

My daughter was probably turned off by the sloppy table of contents. But then she looked in it again and she couldn't put it down. She even shared some of it with her 6th grade classmates!!

This is one of those books you have around for years. Buy it when she is 9 or 10 and she'll go back to it for years. It has a lot of fun "slumber party" type activities and ideas in it. How to.. type info. Great gift.
