This is basically “how to be a girl” advice for teens. The book is divided into sections such as make-up, hair, hygiene, diets, etc. Once you get all these requirements in place, you are sure to be a successful teen girl.
The book takes an “ABC” approach to organizing topics. I really hate this kind of organization unless you are talking about ABC books, a dictionary, or an encyclopedia. In order to make this work, we have a brief articles (very brief) on topics such as “Xenophobia”, “No-No’s, and “Zest”. My personal favorite was the entry on Menopause. Obviously, this is an important topic for teen girls.
The topics are really hair, fashion, make-up, and of course, diet. In fact, diet is probably the largest section in the book. It also includes advice on vitamin supplements. The tone is pretty casual and there are no caveats to check with a doctor.
The age of the book should make this an automatic weed. Who wants to read something your mom probably read? My rule of thumb is that teen nonfiction shouldn’t be older than the teens.
