KIRKUS REVIEW

Blending good humor with sound advice, Sheila Daly zeroes in on all the problems teenagers consider crucial from going steady to driving and drinking. A series of questions and answers covers each category and there are few young people who will fail to identify with some of the situations presented. Of course the first section is devoted exclusively to matters of the heart --boy meets girl, boy loses girl (and vice versa.) Parental and sibling problems evolve not only around dating, but also about the many everyday occurrences an increasingly independent teenager finds difficult to accept. Personality quandaries, smoking, drinking, money worries (by far not limited to the poor) make up the general format. One may take issue with some of Miss Daly's comments, but her general sense of fun and fair play triumph.
