The New Seventeen Book of Etiquette and Young Living
Girls! Here is your manual for the good life: wedding planning, wardrobe, job hunting and getting ready for college. Of course you can do this all while being the perfect wife and mother.
As of October 1, 2013 this lovely gem was on the shelf of a teen collection in a small public library. Note the publication date. (This is where Holly would gleefully point out she wasn’t even BORN yet!) History buffs would find this interesting and of course, back in the day this would have been a go-to item for teen etiquette.
This particular edition has more pen and crayon marks than I have seen in a long time, as well as some stained pages. However since this poor book is over 40, I am willing to cut it some slack. The librarians hoarding this gem, however, not so much. Weed it and embrace a copy of one of Miss Manners’ books or Peggy Post (Emily Post’s great granddaughter). Preferably from the last few years.
