The Girl’s Guide to Conquering Life by Erica & Jonathan Catherman (Revell Publishing)


This was an interesting book. I wasn’t really sure what it was going to contain, but once I started reading on a few of the “how to” chapters, I was impressed. It’s a good book for teens and maybe even those just entering college. There are many areas in a young girls life where they may not be informed of “how to” do certain things.

I found the chapter on how to tie scarves truly interesting, because for “old” me that was insightful.

The chapters go from how to take care of yourself when it comes to cleanliness (such as shampooing and shaving your underarms), to how to conduct yourself on a date. Then how to get the job, ask for a raise and then how to do laundry. Believe me, when I entered college I didn’t really know who to run a washing machine, so something like this would have been helpful.

In hindsight, in some high schools students are sent to a boarding academy (such as my religion) their freshman year. So in that vein, this would be PERFECT for them. College, not so much, but for the freshman living away from I think it’s ideal.

This book isn’t for everyone. But for me, I would definitely pick this up for the right young girl headed off to summer camp or academy.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review.
