Book Description

March 4 2000
"No one knows the value of 'looking hot' as much as teens do. Having it 'together' can spell the difference between being one of the crowd-or not. But the 'success potion' isn't found in a bottle or a pill any more than in a great outfit or the latest hairstyle, eye shadow or nail polish. It's also more important than winning the approval it takes to be the most popular 'in' person at school. The really 'beautiful' are those comfortable in their own skin, who make the most of their natural beauty and have learned to like themselves. Jennifer's practical advice will show you how."
-Kate MacIsaac
1997 Miss California Teen All American
Miss Teen U.S.A.

Jennifer Leigh Youngs, coauthor of the bestseller, Taste Berries for Teens, created this complete guidebook for every girl's teen years. Ranging the gamut from healthy eating, fitness and stress reduction, to skin and hair care, fashion, makeup and more, this book offers girls all they need to feel beautiful, inside and out.

Although the author offers helpful tips on all of the above, even more important, she shows girls that it's what's on the inside that truly makes each of us beautiful. This book also includes photographs, which beautifully and effectively illustrate the principles the author teaches. As they journey through the challenging years of adolescence, girls will find the information and advice in this book invaluable. This book is destined to become a favorite with teens and adolescents.


Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-10-This self-help book focuses on inner and outer beauty, offering positive, upbeat advice on a variety of topics such as self-esteem; skin, nail, and hair care; healthy eating; fitness; body piercing and tattoos; fashion; and makeup. The author reminds teens that it is unhealthy to compare themselves to the "perfect model" and that everyone has a different body type and shape. Unfortunately, however, all the photos show teens who look like traditional beauty queens, including the author herself. The text is written in a conversational, informal style, and the discussions of grades, dating, and choice of clothing will ring true to most young people. Thought-provoking questions and checklists are integrated throughout. Basically, this book will appeal to white middle-class girls who enjoy Seventeen magazine.

2.0 out of 5 stars UNREALISTIC Dec 27 2001
Format:Paperback
I thought that this book has some good facts but on the other hand, It had a really unrealistic feel to it. It sounds like the author, lives in a fairyland world far from what is really happening. I really did not enjoy the book and was very unhappy with the author's job on writing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful! Jan. 26 2001
Format:Paperback
This book is very helpful dealing with health, fitness, and beauty, but the style part is very outdated, as are the pictures! Awesome food guide that teaches what foods you need, how to lose weight (safely), and tasty recipes. Complete picture guide to proper stretching, with i found very handy! The makeup tips are average, mainly things I already knew, but they may help a beginner.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Overall Good Book Nov. 19 2000
By Lauren
Format:Paperback
This book had a lot of great tips in it, although some of them seemed a little bit outdated- like suggestions to buy a blazer and wear scarves. ( It kinda gave me the 1980's feel) but overall the ideas were helpful, and i enjoyed the self-esteem boosting attitude that the author gave. The healthy lifestyle suggestions were very practical. A great gift idea for any teen.
