Show of hands: How many of you dabbled in these awesome late 80s fashions?
Of course, I can’t believe it is still in a teen nonfiction collection. I can hear every modern teen girl going “Ewwww.” I am going to guess they don’t want to look like Mom’s high school senior photo. This book should have been weeded by 1995 at the latest.
When I was a teen, I loved this kind of book, especially the before and after pictures. Unfortunately, I always looked like the before picture.
For its time, it was a good purchase. Seriously, though the 80s (and 90s, and 00s too) are over. Let’s all move on with our lives. Think about it, the kids featured in this book are now planning for retirement or yelling at their own teens. Soon, they will be asking about senior discounts and AARP memberships.
