MISS BEHAVIOR by Bernice Bryant


Email this review


As cloying as the title of this text are the myriad cliches it provides for the bewildered teen-ager in search of charm. Absolute after absolute is spooned down her throat in the promise that, through these formulae, she will achieve her goal. Little tests which suggest scientific accuracy are provided to harry further has as they purport to determine the degree of her femininity, elegance, and adjustment. And finally, whatever appears here that might have some practical value to the Miss of the title has already appeared many times in other such texts. A book which assumes and encourages ""other-directedness"" in many vitiating ways.
