KIRKUS REVIEW

Another book on how to be a beguiling young lady, this text represents a departure from the recent crop. It addresses its readers, not so much as if they were candidates for the cover of Vogue but as if they were teen-aged girls faced with problems in ordinary matters like unruly hair, diet, limited clothes budgets, shyness, etc. Concentrated, it covers a large gamut of physical and behavioral snags, making a valiant attempt to unravel them with common sense. A helpful guide for girls who have somehow escaped the elementary knowledge it imparts.
