Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Girl guidance-and all-out fun-abounds in an array of smart and sassy titles. The first, Yikes! A Smart Girl's Guide to Surviving Tricky, Sticky, Icky Situations from the editors of American Girl, illus. by Bonnie Timmons, provides commonsense solutions to 40 scenarios, including what to do "if you're having your period and get blood on your clothes." In addition to quick-fix ideas, the volume offers preventive measures to avoid the situation next time. The pocket-size paperback's straightforward section headings (e.g., "Quick Thinking" and "Using Logic") tie predicaments together; cartoon-like illustrations add a touch of humor. Ages 10-up.

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8-For the most part, the entries in this book hit the mark, with advice about such predicaments as not getting along with one's teacher or being caught doing something wrong. There's the lighthearted (what to do if you fall down stairs in front of people) and also the deadly serious (what to do "if you fall through ice"). Friends figure often, among them those who want to copy homework or who tell others the name of your crush. At times, however, the featured situations will have limited applicability, such as "how not to fall off a horse." And some readers may not be highly interested in how to remove various stains from carpet and clothing. That said, the last advice is a statement of empowerment: "You can stand on your own two feet. You've got a good brain. You've got common sense. Keep them handy. Trust yourself. You'll be able to handle just about anything." That advice alone makes the book worthy of purchase. Colorful cartoon drawings brighten the pages.

A Smart Girl's Guide To Sticky Situations is the best book I have ever owned. It actually talks about the things that girl pre-teens and girl teenagers have to go through when they are becoming a "woman" over time. This book really helped me in all topics. It helped me with periods the most...which is about the most confusing thing once teenagers know about what it is, how it works, what to do, and most of all how to protect.

This book doesn't help with just periods. It helps with things that are very embarrissing (spelling check?), tips when getting lost, how to avoid dangerous things, dealing with rumors, and so, so much more!

I'm sure that everyone that bought this book, will have no questions at the end. This book has everything you need to know!

I bought this for my 13 year old daughter. She opened the book, read what interested her and never touched the book again. Although she did state the advice was good and mostly common sense. I sat and read it cover to cover and did realize most everything is common sense placed in a cute format. It is a very quick and entertaining read (silly illustrations). I would purchase this for a pre-teen not a know-it-all teen. Suggested age 9-12.

Very fun book. Purchased it for my 10 year old niece. Couple of surprising write ups on what to do if your period bleeds through your clothes and what do to if a tampon falls out of your backpack at school. Wasn't quite expecting that. As long as the young lady has had "the chat" with an adult, this is a great book filled with fun, light-hearted advice.

Format: Paperback
A Smart Girl's Guide to Sticky Situations is an absolutely wonderful book for preteens about some of the weird situations that people of any age can find themselves in. With very appealingly silly illustrations, the book covers the expected items like flunking a test, not getting picked for a team, looking goofy in photos, etc.

However, there are some serious situations that are beautifully handled. For example, information about what to do if you are separated from your family in the city could save a child's life. Knowing how to handle false accusations could save a child's sanity!

Little sidebars called "Disaster Blasters" provide information to prevent all manner of inconvenience, embarrassment and grief! While some reviewers have stated that this is merely a compilation of common sense, keep in mind that maturity comes with age and experience, and this book is aimed at a very young audience.

I really do wish that I had this book, myself, many years ago, and I highly recommend it for any young lady in your family circle.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much. It tells you what to do in a sticky event, such as having your period in public, finding a lost dog, falling down the stairs at school, and even more. I thought this book was very helpful. It presents information that is easy to understand and vital. My only complaint (and the reason why I rated this book four stars) is that I felt the book as a little too short. I would have liked for their to be more sticky events, and what do in them. Otherwise, a fantastic, great book.

Format: Paperback
What do you do if you get separated from your parents in a big city? What if your BFF tells EVERYONE in the whole school who you like? What if you forget your lines on the big opening night of a play? Yikes has the answers to these problems and much more. It gives helpful advice and ways to prevent bad things from happening, but it's also fun to read. I love this book and hope that you will too.

I loved this book because when I would worry about things happening to me at school, like falling down the stairs and other embarrassing things, I would pick up this book and after I finished it I felt much better! I suggest this book to girls from the age of 8 to even 17!!
