This book reminded me of The Daring Book for Girls with its wealth of practical, hands-on advice. To be honest, I didn’t read every single how-to from start to finish since I don’t have my driver’s license (hence, the chapter on cars wasn’t applicable) and I don’t play any sports (so same for the chapter on that subject). However, I did skim those chapters and the advice looks really good and something I’ll definitely revisit when I need to know more about how to drive stick or throw a football.
As for the other chapters, the ones I actually read, I really enjoyed them! There were some great tips and techniques in there. I’m kinda glad the author put the chapter on Guys & Dating first because I probably would’ve skipped ahead to read it (*wink*). I also enjoyed the Health & Beauty and Food & Cooking chapters – I knew a lot of the stuff already, but it’s always good to have a refresher, right?
Overall, I found The Girl’s Guide to Conquering Life to be a easy, helpful read that I’d recommend to girls of pretty much any age (but particularly 12 to 18 year olds).
I received this book for free from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
