Synopses & Reviews
"Toussaint advises boys on how to effectively communicate with girls in this book, first published in Australia. Tackling negative stereotypes (aka 'boy myths'), he encourages boys to express emotions, know when to walk away from dangerous situations, and resist pressure to be 'macho.' He also suggests good conversation topics; offers tips on what not to discuss with a girl; and covers dating protocols, like how to decipher whether or not a girl is interested, or why something might have made her upset. Toussaint also includes a chapter for gay, bisexual, and transgender teens, as well as a brief (Australia-focused) list of resources. Available simultaneously: How to Talk to Boys by Dianne Todaro. Ages 14 up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
