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.

Review

"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 Teen U.S.A.

I think that this book is a great source of information for teenagers. It provides great advice for teenagers feeling lost or confused. I think that every parent should have a copy of this book to give to their growing up child. I especially liked the foreward by Bettie B. Youngs.She sure is educated. The diet and exercise portion is exactly what teens need because they worry about their appearence so much.It tells about potion size which is the most important. My daughter loves this book!

This book is very helpful dealing with health, fitness, and beauty, but the style part is very outdated, as are the pictures!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.

This book had a lot of great tips in it, although some of them seemed a little bit outdated- like suggestions to buy a blazer and wear scarves.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.

By Adam Daly on 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.
