Library Journal Review
Gr 7 Up-Covering parties and special occasions like prom, homecoming, quinceanera, and graduation, the authors have developed a modern set of rules for navigating today's more relaxed social customs with finesse and confidence. Myriad issues are tackled, from how to rent a tuxedo and who pays for what on prom night to table settings and crafting the perfect thank-you note, with important points highlighted. The comprehensive guide gives proper respect to religious occasions and thoughtfully explains how to determine from an invitation whether bringing a date is acceptable or not. Witty line drawings complement the text. The book does waiver into more than a manners book in its advice on carefully weighing whether to have post-prom sex, but overall it gives good information on how to comport oneself in various situations.-Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta (c) Copyright 2010.
