“I can categorize the young women I’ve met through my trials and travails into two groups: ladies and tramps,” writes Blasberg in the introduction to this modern manners book. With a clean design that makes excellent use of line art and photographs, the book discusses dressing properly (“Unless you’re a cheerleader or prepubescent little girl, there is no reason to run around town in a half tee”), social graces, making friends, finding love, and facing temptation, as well as works of art, film, and literature ladies should know. Blasberg acknowledges the mixed messages directed at young women, while encouraging levelheadedness and precaution (readers might want to double-check certain claims; he states that herpes “can be communicated through toilet seats”). But underlying Blasberg’s arch (and entertaining) voice are good intentions—and decent advice. Ages 12–up. (Apr.)
