Bought this for my niece after reading all the reviews. Sounded good natured and innocent. I read through it when it came and found some of the ideas to be inappropriate, ESPECIALLY for young girls! I would never tell my little girl that she should skinny dip, throw a drinking party when her parents are gone, condone having sex and learning about Planned Parenthood...etc. Needless to say I did some editing and the remaining ideas were cute and appropriate. They included family values, volunteering, learning good habits...etc. I was a bit disappointed that NONE of the 12 reviews for this book had even mentioned this stuff!

I bought this book for my 13 year old niece who was entering high school. My niece is a bit sheltered and therefore young for her age. She read the book in short order and then reported it to her mother. My sister was on the phone to me (laughing)asking me what kind of books I was buying for her daughter. There were several inappropriate suggestions involving nudity and alcohol. My niece thought they were outrageous and told her mother. However, my niece really did like some of the suggestions and will be doing them (not the inappropriate stuff!). She also liked the setup of the book. I think she read the whole thing in less than an hour.

Thought some of these were very funny. Parents had a different opinion. We may not be invited back next year.

I purchased this for a 14 year old and a 16 year old. I will give it to the older (she's mature) but not the younger.

As a high school student myself, I absolutely loved this book! It gave me great ideas of things to do with my friends and for my own personal growth. A lot of them were relating to community service which is something that I love so I enjoyed getting new ideas with that. Overall, a great book that I recommend for any high school student.

Well, my title says it all. I ordered this for a high school senior but realized it was both too late and too juvenile for him, it is better for a freshman. There are a couple of pretty great novel ideas in here but most of it is kind of mommy or teacher think. I think the book is a great idea though, some one needs to do more with it than this iteration.

This book, although in a small pocket sized format, is an excellent source of inspiration for things to do before high school is over and you ask yourself "Why did i never take a roadtrip with friends?" or "Why did i ever have that fundraiser for my local SPCA i promised myself i would organize?" As someone who is about to graduate high school, i feel this book covers all those things i still want to do and gives tips on how to do them. I determined my blood type, cooked a three course meal and even hosted my own film festival. These were just some of the suggestions from the book. I plan on giving this too all my friends!

It's often difficult to think of gifts for my teenage grandchildren. As avid book reader, I do love to give books to the kids, but choosing a book can also be a challenge. When I stumbled upon this book, I knew immediately that it would be a WINNER! And it was! My 15-year-old granddaughter (and her parents!) loved the book. She has been checking off the "To Do" items she's already accomplished, and making lists of future "To Do's". This is a Must-Give gift for all parents and grandparents of high school students!

97 things to do before you finish high school is a great book! It is the first book that I have read out there for teenagers, that actually acknowledges (and doesn't condone) the fact that teenagers do more than go to class. It is very unusual that adults, much less a book would recognize that teenagers just want to be teenagers. This book is filled with fun and usual suggestions: like how to go on a road trip (safely) or how to have a party (again safely.) 97 things looks at teenage life through their eyes, but with an adult perspective about health and danger issues. This is the book is a must have!

This book was absolutely fantastic. I enjoyed it because it had so many ideas, and a lot of the suggestions were things that I had once wanted to do but totally forgot about! It's such a fun book and it just summarizes my whole to do list for high school. I also love the way that it's organized, with the different sections like "For your personal developement" and "For your body." I think that it's the perfect christmas or birthday gift for a teen.
