Grade 8 Up-Teenage girls have all kinds of concerns from seemingly trivial ones such as how to say "hi" to more momentous occasions like the first job interview. Along with these concerns, this book covers a wide range of topics with an overall intent of guiding girls toward becoming well-balanced young women. Successful people of all ages are tapped for advice. Hip and chatty in style, GirlWise encourages a self-confident, independent attitude that includes being considerate of others. As part of fostering healthy self-esteem, it tells how to create one's own style without becoming a fashion zombie, how to appreciate and take sensible care of one's body, and how to deal with rejection. While body image is discussed, it is more in the vein of self-acceptance, diet, and exercise-this book does not venture into the realm of sexual issues. Readers can also find out how to unclog a toilet, change a diaper, do laundry, and start a band. The last two chapters, "Be Caring" and "Be Conscious," point the way toward attitudes and actions that result in a truly mature person. This is a silly, serious, and totally fun book for those who want to take charge of their lives and evolve into first-class, well-rounded adults.

What this book actually is, is a collection of the stupidest, most inane bit of "advice" ever put forth. Some examples:
"Don't use liquid eyeliner. If you want to use liner, use powder." p55.
"Don't force your hand too far into the hole (of the toilet bowl)." p72.
"Remember: Customer service means giving the customer good service." p177.
Add that to the snippets of garbage from 'real people' -- like this one:
"Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Jessica, 18, California."
This whole book reads like the author Googled a bunch of keywords for teens and cut and pasted the results into Word and published the pages.
Seriously, save your money. The author should be ashamed of herself for putting something like this out there.
