Review

“A lifesaver…. [The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sticky Situations is] the paperback personification of a BFF, and you won’t want to leave home without it.” (LATimes.com)

From the Back Cover

This is the book to grab when . . . you're pulling your hair out, screaming like a banshee, blubbering with frustration, or hyperventilating because you just don't know what to do!

Jane Buckingham, author of The Modern Girl's Guide to Life, is back with a collection of helpful quick fixes for the deserving gal with the best intentions who gets caught in sticky situations. Here are warm, witty, and eminently wise solutions to those everyday problems that pop up as a result of impulsive actions or just plain bad luck—helpful hints on what to do if you:

  • Send an e-mail you instantly regret
  • Botch your self-tan
  • Discover your best friend's husband is cheating on her
  • Break your corkscrew while opening your only bottle of wine
  • Run into your ex and need to look hot, fast!
  • Are expected to name your baby after a family member with an awful name

And that's just a small sampling of the scenarios for which Jane Buckingham offers solutions in The Modern Girl's Guide to Sticky Situations. So if you find yourself in a pickle . . . just leave it to Jane!

LOVED this book! As a single woman in my late 20's this book is filled with aha moments that have come in handy already. Who knew you could get red wine out of a white couch? Or when the cork goes into the wine bottle, to use a coffee filter to fix the problem. I've also started putting tweezers in my car, because Jane Buckingham is SO RIGHT! You do see those unwanted stray chin / eyebrow hairs best when the light is shining...

Definitely recommend this book. Its laugh out loud funny, honest and filled with information to get anyone out of Sticky Situations!! Its become my own personal "survival guide".

You need to get this book. It is hysterical, interesting, enlightening and all together, on so many levels, too true!

Imagine if you could....that you are able to roll up your ultimate BFF and carry her around. This book would be her!

The moment I received the book...I was drawn in.

This is not a regular read cover to cover book but rather a reference book of pretty much anything you can imagine. With chapter titles such as:

* Sticky Situations in Love
* Sticky Situations in Weddings
* Sticky Situations in Parties
* Sticky Situations in Beauty

You will find yourself laughing and relating to many of the scenarios and situations presented in this book. In fact, some of them are so silly or downright embarrassing you might be really grateful that there is now proof that others have experienced the situation too. You know it is just awful when you feel like you are the only one to have done something dumb, doesn't it?

My favorite section was Sticky Situations in Your Family. Now, don't get me wrong I have a wonderful family...both the in-laws and the outlaws...but sometimes well, you just find yourself in "those" kind of situations....such as "Your family expects you to name your baby after a particular family member, but you dont' want to" or "You woke up and realized your kids are just plain spoiled" and "You're fighting with your siblings or step-sibling over an inheritance"

In situation after situation you will see yourself or someone you know. Jane has done a wonderful job in creating honesty, humor and lighthearted way at looking at life. This is not Jane's first book as she is also the author of The Modern Girl's Guide to Life and The Modern Girl's Guide to Motherhood. Pick them up and enjoy!

Psst...Jane...if you need reviews on those...I'm your girl!

THE MGGTSS covers it all, all the sticky details. there is nothing too sticky for the author. what a great girlfriend advice book as well as a fun gift to give. a couple of my gal pals and I have had quite a laugh playing with the book. almost like we've created the Sticky Situation game. Great fun, good read, I wish she was back on TV with her modern girl's guide and this. 5 stars for the girls.

This book made me laugh. in fact, it made me laugh so hard out loud that my husband kept looking over at me from the other end of the couch rolling his eyes. There are so many truths in this book whether you're a single woman in her 20's or married woman in her 40's, there's always something you can relate to on every page you turn. I highly recommend this entertaining and even pithy book...Girlfriends Guide is a perfect summer read and an even better girlfriends gift...

To be perfectly honest, I usually hate most advice books-- to me they usually come across as preachy or obviously superficial. This book is different. It is edgy and fun. Buckingham is someone you feel like you want to be friends with-- in fact, i feel like a collection of my girlfriends wrote it under a pseudonym.

I often wish that I could have a personal rewind button to pause and erase what I just said or did and start again. Until then, this book is extremely helpful!

This book is like having a portable best girlfriend/big sister on call to walk you through life's little (and sometimes big) messes. Jane Buckingham helps you save face and find grace in the least graceful of situations. And she dispenses advice with the warm humor and common sense of somebody who's lived to tell the tale and won't judge you for sticking your foot in a little too deep.

I'm a girl who gets herself into a lot of Sticky Situations, so this is the perfect book for me. It's a really fun read and a great night stand staple to just dip into when you need a bit of Jane Buckingham's wise and very funny advice. Jane is my go-to girl for everything that a modern girl needs to know. A great addition to the Modern Girl series.
