Gr. 7^-12. Probably not on any teen's must-read list, this is nevertheless chockablock with information YAs may find useful as well as some they'll simply mock. It contains much of the same sort of advice gathered in the authors' 1986 book Emily Post Talks with Teens about Manners and Etiquette, which ranged from tips on tipping to mannerly introductions. Chapters on table manners and communication are the most thorough in this book, with the latter including etiquette for e-mail, call-waiting, and even beepers. As in the earlier book, there are suggestions on ways to smooth out family relationships and conduct oneself on dates and with peers, with the authors urging teens not to give in to pressure to "use drugs and alcohol, to smoke cigarettes or marijuana, to shoplift, to have sex for the wrong reasons." The voice is a little chirpy and lecturish, but the book still shows readers that manners aren't simply about how to behave, they're about consideration for others. Stephanie Zvirin
