Mavis Jukes is the queen of girl talk, but this time she's set her sights on the guys. Told in the author's usual straightforward, funny, favorite-aunt style, "The Guy Book" delivers sound information and useful advice for boys preparing to go through, or in the midst of, puberty. Boys will find specific information on a variety of subjects, from getting rid of acne to buying birth control to finding help for depression. Answering questions that are too embarrassing to ask, dealing with guy-basics like tying a tie, being a good friend, and essential dating dos and don ts, this is a must-have for boys who want to get the facts, be in control, and learn how to make informed choices.
