Book Review: A Girls Guide to Life by Katie Meier

 A girl’s guide to life by Katie Meier
          A girl’s guide to life is written for teenage girls.  The guide glosses over a variety of topics important to the pre-teen girl such as romance, sex and sexuality, peer pressure, your rights and guys.  Katie Meier exposes a “big myth” in each chapter and presents the girls with the “real deal” so they can face life confidently.
          I feel the information in the book is well written and a great stepping stone for mother’s and daughters to use as a starting point on how to become a young women.  I would love to see a small group of pre-teen mom’s and daughters working through this book together while they enjoyed pizza and facial scrubs.  Honestly, though my girls wouldn’t buy this book for themselves.  The layout of this book is boring, if my teen had flipped through it in the store, she would have put it back and that is unfortunate because I think she would have enjoyed it.  The book lacks pizzazz and eye candy like pretty graphics and funky fonts.  In an age where you have just seconds to grab a teen’s attention I feel this fails the test. 
          I do recommend parents to buy this book and challenge your pre-teen daughters to read it, but what would be even better is if Mom or Grandma would read it with them.
