Teen Girl Talk
How about a little girl talk?
This book has the info you need to grow into a successful woman. Naturally, that means deep introspection and analysis of make-up, hair, fashion, and diets. It’s “frank and fun!”
I think today’s teens and preteens would find this book ridiculous. Miss washing your face completely last night before bed? Hello acne and awful skin. What does the author think these preteen girls are doing? Out clubbing with heavy makeup and smoking? One missed day washing your face is hardly a cause for alarm. That’s the beauty of youth. You can mess up and still have decent skin.
The rest is pretty much a re-hash of every teen magazine article on diet, exercise, and makeup. I flocked to these kinds of books when I was a teen. Even back in the olden days of the late 1960s and early 1970s, I would have cringed at the title. Maybe we just need better books for tween and teen girls that won’t have them questioning every little detail about their appearance.
