Not an etiquette book, but a book on growing up -- an adolescent ""on being a real person"". Frank, thoughtful, well-written, a book which faces the normal problems of a girl in the teens, -- dates, how to be popular, the decision about what to do after school, application to school and home work, hobbies, etc. Added to this, the author has discussed the special problems of today, a teen-a in wartime, having a good time without ""men"", using leisure to prepare for the returning soldiers, etc. The theory is liberally illustrated with case histories. There's a good section on reading. But there's a notable lack of mention of war work -- after school hours, or defense or war jobs, which are vitally interesting to teen agers today. Apart from that --its an eminently readable book, which will make girls think about themselves -- and others.
