The Daring Book for Girls
The book description says, "The Daring Book for Girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know—and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it's female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it's not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers—although that's included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl's invitation to adventure."
If you were to write a manual for girls, what would it contain?
I would want to include the dates of all the sports' seasons and number of games a person has to sit through (it would have been nice to have the warning before living with Husband). I would want a tip calculator with who gets tipped and at what percentage on average. I also want to include how to find out where I should vote and how to find out when my state's primary is (February 12, by the way).
