Bingo Brown's Guide to Romance Paperback – December 1, 1994
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Grade 5-8-- Bingo Brown is back in this fourth hilarious yet poignant account of life on an adolescent roller coaster. He begins his definitive ``Guide to Romance'' as a legacy for baby brother, Jamie, just as a new romantic disaster occurs. Melissa, the love of his life and the only girl to smell of gingersnaps, returns to town unexpectedly. Bingo, as usual, is a likable, bright, wry character stumbling towards maturity. The short chapters, comic style, and immediacy of his thoughts and feelings add to the appeal. While this volume stands solidly alone, Bingo's fans will applaud his return--and hope that the saga continues. --Connie Tyrrell Burns, Mahoney Middle School, South Portland, ME

Bingo is beginning to write a Guide to Romance so that his new brother Jamie can benefit from Bingo's experience when Jamie is old enough to "ride the roller coaster of life." Bingo knows quite a lot about romance, as he's been carrying on with Melissa for three books now, and some of the time it was even a Long Distance relationship filled with letters and expensive phone calls. Bingo is in for some unexpected surprises when Melissa shows up back in town.
If you know any twelve year olds, you should give them this book.
Thank you, NetGalley and Open Road Integrated Media, for this free book to review!
How old is Bingo? This is the only book in the series that I've read. He sounds like a genius. Hence, Bingo is quite the likable protagonist. ;)
The ending was too swift for me. I expected there to be a final dramatic turn, but that might have been because there were ten to twenty pages left. Turns out, though, that those pages were about the author.
This book was hilarious and I would totally recommend it to tween guys going through crushes of their own.
