I found this book through The Literature Lady on Facebook. I am so glad. What a great story.

I have read several… Read more

It's the same ol' sad advice to keep a man. Whatever. If you read Seventeen Magazine very much in the last 20 years, you already know what you need to know. And if you didn't, well, save your money.
Mr. Dwayne has his moments of humor and truth, but for the most part he is just condescending and doesn't offer anything new. And he curses. A lot. Calls his reader names like beyotch. (spelled a bit differently)
Yeah. I don't need to be called names. If you give your hoo-hah away to any man that comes along, then maybe this book… Read more
