Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
"Prom and Party Etiquette" by Cindy Post Senning and Peggy Post is a modern book on teen mannerisms. The authors cover everything from how to invite others, what to wear to gatherings, how different parties have unique customs, where silverware is, and more. Dance parties, proms, sweet sixteens, confirmations, homecomings, spring flings and such are elucidated. The book is split into chapters with bullet points, explanations, boxed-off tips, and some questions from teens that are answered in the style of a magazine column. The drawn pictures are quite amusing, as well.

This is one of the few teen party books that can actually be read by boys. Sure, most of the material pertains to girls, but, at some parts, the authors go into detail on tuxedo rentals and how guys should behave. The book discourages drugs and alcohol, which is good. The only bad thing is that, when the topic of intercourse after parties is mentioned, the authors suggest teens "think it over" by asking themselves a series of questions, some of which involve birth control methods. The book should promote abstinence until marriage, but, since it does not, it should not fall into young, impressionable children's hands. Other than that, the authors did a stand-up job.
