I ordered this book for my 12 year old dd to read after seeing the author on Dr. Phil. She read it and said that it was okay but that it was better for older girls. I glanced through it and would have to agree. There are some subjects that were a little beyond her level. It is written by a father for his daughters, with a lot of humor. Good book for teen girls.
This was a cute little book about life's lessons. It's a dad writing to his daughters, giving them advice, etc etc. It was funny and it was heartwarming. It was just perfect for this time of the year. A good read for any parent of a girl - or for a pre-teen or teen girl. A good read. The author made me smile - he sounds like an awesome dad!
