REVIEW BY: Angel, age 13 years, 4 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book has a lot of advice for teenage girls including how to deal with mean girls, boys and confidence in yourself. 

This book is about tons of things circling around 10 things every 1 girl needs to know. 

However, some of the things I didn't agree on, but every girl has their own opinions on every subject. I would certainly take some of Ms. Kampaki's advice on most of the topics. 

I recommend this for preteen and teen girls that need some advice with the difficult things in life. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up.
