"Rule #10: Don't eat like a bird on a date."

"Rule #24: Don't ask a boy if he loves you."
Looking for some real guidance in the strange new world of dating, boys, and relationships? If advice from your Great Aunt Petunia ("Boys are only after one thing, honey. Watch out!") or your big sister ("Oh puh-lease, you're so immature!") isn't quite cutting it, this book is for you. Thirty-one rules offer girls solid advice (not laws!) on difficult dating questions. For example, is it okay to cancel plans with a friend if that hottie in American History class asks you out? What if you see your best friend's boyfriend making out with another girl? How can you tell--or show--the guy you have a crush on that you want to kiss him? Each rule provides commonsense suggestions for handling different situations, and includes comments from teens who have dealt with the same issues. The emphasis is on building strong, healthy, honest relationships. A fun, lighthearted tone encourages teens to explore this territory without getting bogged down in unnecessary games or heavy commitment. (Ages 13 and older) --Emilie Coulter

For the most part, this was a good, informattive, helpful book. It is for teen girls, telling them the "rules" about dating, boys, and relationships.
One star is missing. I had to deduct one star because there was one or two "rules" I didn't completely agree with. But the other rules were pretty much correct. There was some pretty good advice and info. For example, one of the best bits of advice in this book, is Rule #7: "Don't let your date give you grief about your curfew. They're your rules, not his." This particular rule isn't just about curfews, it's about control. Control is not a healthy factor in a relationship. In fact, it's downright toxic. It keeps the girl from being the beautiful, creative human being that God made her to be. This sentence, on page 35, really speaks volumes and I love this statement so much: "It's a sign that he may be quite childish in his inability to incorporate the needs and concerns of others into his own life, which could lead to future problems in your relationship". That sentence is so true. A controlling guy is very selfish - he has to have his own way, and he will not incorporate other people's needs/wants/concerns into his own - he has to have his own way. There are other good examples and other good advice in this book.
There are 31 "rules" . . . so you can read one each day of the month . . .
This book was left over from one of my daughters . . . I bought it for them . . . but I finally read it years later. Sometimes I read things that have nothing to do with me . . . I am not a teen, nor am I worried about dating, boys, or relationships . . . I already know all these things, from life experience . . . but I love to read, even things that don't apply to me. I also like to read to see what my kids are reading, or what they have read (sometimes it's years later before I read the books.
For the most part, this is a good book with good advice. I do highly recommend this book, even though I had to deduct a star. But as a mature person, (whether you're a teen or adult), I'm sure you can filter out what is not right for you.
Highly recommended. Good book.
