From the Inside Flap

Excerpt in catalog:
It's all about marketing. For most of you, your target is the guys at your school. And every day you get dressed you create not only an image but a marketing campaign that tells your target market what they get when they get you. Are you hot, sassy, playful, exciting, shy, seductive, or athletic?

You've probably never really thought about it, this accidental marketing, but you do it. So why not take charge of your marketing campaign and make it what you want it to be and not some big accident (or one waiting to happen)? Let's start off with a little image consulting. This is the prep work we need to do before we dive into what sexy really is and how we manage our own sexiness.

From the Back Cover

If it ain't on the menu, keep it covered up!

Let's get real. You wanna look good. If you're like most girls, you want the attention of the opposite sex. And unless you've been living under a rock, you know that looking sexy is supposedly key to being today's "it" girl.

But have you stopped to consider that you're advertising with every outfit you put on? It's all marketing. Your clothes tell the world (including those visual creatures called guys) who you think you are.

Just because skin is in doesn't mean you have to let it all hang out to look great. Sexy Girls is all about helping you understand your body and how guys look at it. (And they are looking!) It explores why God cares about what's in your closet and helps you make good decisions on style that will keep you, your parents, and God all satisfied.

Hayley DiMarco has a passion for producing relevant material for teens. She is the founder of the Hungry Planet think tank, the author of Mean Girls, and the coauthor of Dateable and Marriable.

Hayley! (if you read these...)

This is Brianna you probably don't remember me but you prayed with me at the Women of Faith conference in Hartford. You spoke about Mean Girls and you gave me a copy when I told you I didn't have the money. Even if you don't remember, I want you to know that I remember you listening to my mean girl stories and the help you gave me. I also remember you were very kind to me when everyone around wanted your autograph but you ignored them to listen to me. I want you to know that I also remember you suggesting the girls might be being mean to me for how I dressed. And you were righting a book on that to.

Well, I got that book last week and even though I never really took your suggestion seriously before I know now what I've been doing is wrong. I loved the book even tho it was hard to face the truth. I looked in the mirror and saw "how I was marketing myself" and I didn't like it one bit. So I broke up with my boyfriend and told my mom I wanted to burn my clothes. Drastic I know!! I just didn't like the memories they had and didn't want some one else to repeat what I did.

So anyways, even if you don't remember me, ill always remember you.

Bri from Hartford

For a book all about "advertising the content, not advertising the packaging" I have to say the publisher of this book may want to rethink its presentation.

First, let me commend the author and say the content is good. I'm about 2/3 of the way through the book and I think Hayley Dimarco is right on target. She doesn't pull any punches and tells it like it is in a very hip and approachable manner (exactly right for the trendy teens who need to read the book in the first place).

But the photos in the book, black and white historical pinups, are distracting at best, disturbing at worst. Was it really necessary to include the photos of a chemise clad woman (pg 34), the midrif barring Marilyn look-alike (70) or the belly-dance bra lady (on pg 94)? They seem very sexually charged - just the kind of thing Dimarco is warning against. As a female reader it's distracting. Woe to the poor dad that tries to read this book along with his daughter.

The paper - shiny, stiff and hard to flip - doesn't endear me to the book either. Some of the parapraph layouts inside are too tight to read comfortably, though as a graphic designer I appreciate the non-traditional grid system and the creative attempt to push the envelope.

Unfortunate, because as a mentor to young teen girls, this book is 100% on the mark - exactly the words I would want to say. I only hope the packaging doesn't hinder the message.

Thank you, Hayley, for the message; I urge the publisher to re-issue with different packaging.

Are you wondering why worldly guys act interested in you, but the really godly guys don't? Is your daughter struggling over how to fit in with her friends while not making you and her dad go ballistic? Are you looking for material to help the girls in your youth group understand their responsibility to the guys around them when it comes to clothing? Hayley DiMarco's Sexy Girls may be just what you need.

Don't let the cover turn you off. It's a sexy girl in a halter (at least I think it's still called a halter) top and low-cut jeans with lots of skin showing. DiMarco's take on the issues of modesty and our feminine responsibility to God and the men around are much overdue.

DiMarco's goal is to "help you figure out your image--who you are, who you want to be, and who you want others to thing you are." (13) To do that, she starts with what seeing lots of female skin does to guys, even icky guys, even old guys. She recommends humility over self-esteem and developing character by losing weight through exercise and diet rather than liposuction. She tries to get girls to understand the dangers of alcohol and of bad friends based on the Bible. She then encourages them with ideas for forming a fashionable affordable wardrobe.

DiMarco writes in a frank, hip, conversational style that should appeal to young readers, but she doesn't play fast and loose with the Scripture. She includes quotations, startling statistics on alcohol, liposuction, and male vs. female items in bathrooms. She also provides letters from young readers and her answers. Certain sections of the book provide working areas for the readers to respond to her questions.

Most girls want to look good and be attractive to the opposite sex. And many girls, in their quest to attract guys, fail to consider what they are advertising with their clothes, make-up, body art, body piercing and behavior.

Sexy Girls: How Hot is Too Hot? by Hayley DiMarco will help young women understand their bodies and how guys look at them. It will also help them understand their sexuality and how it impacts guys.

DiMarco begins her book by asking girls to respond to questions about who they are, their style, what they think people see when looking at them, what is their spiritual life, their social life, how sexy they think they are and what do guys see when they look at them.

Through thoughtful narrative, quizzes, tips and techniques and biblical references, DiMarco offers a logical perspective on positive and negative image. She invites girls to develop their perfect image; one that they can be proud of, and one that God will approve of.

Armchair Interviews says: Parents, run, don't walk to the bookstore and pick up Sexy Girls: How Hot is Too Hot? for your daughters. It may change how they view themselves and they may emotionally, spiritually and physically make powerful decisions to present a better, more pleasing image to God and the guys.
