This is a book of manners for teenage girls who just don't have a clue. A teen girl who thinks that MTV is a true and accurate version of real life and her personal life reflects that belief. A teen girl who thinks it's okay to read only tabloids and pole dance and dress like a prostitute. Since I'm not a teen girl, nor do I think that any of those things are okay, I didn't fully enjoy this book. I still got a few tidbits here and there. And the book helped me appreciate my parents and Church leaders more because they raised me right. But I'm sure glad I didn't buy this book! (I first found it at a bookstore and I enjoyed the few pages I read) It's worth a read if you are teen girl. If not, read Emily Post's works. Much more appropriate.

AJK this is so true and it makes me extremely sad to admit that. maybe this is the only way to get through the instant-gratification, social-media-whoring world of teenage girls these days :(
