Robyn Schneider's THE SOCIAL CLIMBER'S GUIDE TO HIGH SCHOOL is a fabulous guide to the average high school experience.

Truth be told, I expected a vain, stuck-up instruction manual teaching the next generation of high school students to be vain, snobbish girls a' la Mean Girls. I stand corrected. It does have its moments of being slightly snooty, but having recently finished high school myself, I found that it was right on the money.

Ms. Schneider gives you hints and tips for a successful high school experience. She covers everything from how to buy fourteen pairs of shoes in a single day (while only spending $240!) to dealing with gossip, classifying cliques, and being smart without being a know-it-all.

I learned the rules to dating (including the rules for who picks up the bill!) and learned how to fake a boyfriend. Other lessons learned include how to spot a fake Louis Vuitton, how NOT to fake-and-bake, what to buy at a thrift store vs. a boutique, and how to D.I.Y. my room to make it socially acceptable.

I thoroughly enjoyed this guide. It's quite accurate and will be a great companion for any girl entering high school.
