KIRKUS REVIEW

 Bringing a Pollyanna attitude to such advice as ``A smile can start a friendship,'' or not complaining about waiting in line, Dunnahoo stresses self-knowledge as a basis for goal-setting and offers an overview of what teens face--the effects of changes on the body, thinking ahead to college, etc. The material is oddly organized (a section on alternative schooling follows parental guidance on careers). Comic illustrations (``only 4,952 hours to go,'' muses one cartoon character) help move the information along, but for the most part this handbook is so basic that it's not very helpful: most kids will be too sophisticated to find the offerings here useful. Resources; bibliography; index. (Nonfiction. 12-15)
