Philip Nork offers a diary into his adolescent life chronicling the lessons he learnt during his friendships and relationships through out the years. He creates a list of rules to follow regarding females and how to get them to like him.

As you read about his various experiences it’s hard to imagine him as being just a teenager at times. However it does underline how quickly adolescents begin their sexual lives and how many start for the wrong reasons.

Although as a women I have to agree with most points on his list, I find it hard to see many teenage boys wanting to be like him as he is described as being outcast and a bit of a nerd for the most part.

The book does give good advice and teaches tolerance for those who are different, be it because of sexual preference or physical appearance.

An excellent example of how children from broken families are affected by their parents divorce and the consequences it can have on their lives.

I think this book would be better for the parents to read than the children as I can’t see a teenager connecting with it, but can see it being of great aid to the parents both to help them realise how hard a break up can be on the children and to open their eyes about the sort of things their children may be experimenting with.
