    FAR ABOVE RUBIES: A Handbook for Growing Teenage Girls

    Far Above Rubies: A Handbook for Growing Girls" written by Laurenda Salandy, is a comprehensive guide designed for girls as they mature into adulthood. Inspired by the birth and maturation, of her own daughter, Mrs. Salandy has crafted an insightful and thorough offering which provides sage advice for girls on a myriad of specifically feminine topics. The topics discussed range from female hygiene issues to proper selection of clothes, and makeup to how to approach and evaluate relationships with boys. The portion of the book that is most compelling concerns self-esteem. Far too often, life altering poorly made decisions are the product of a girl's lack of self-esteem which can lead to a vast array of difficulties. Many times girls embrace the paths of promiscuity or drug abuse in a misguided attempt to find something to make them feel better about themselves. In this section of the book, Mrs. Salandy effectively conveys crucial information to help girls understand the importance of maintaining a moral standing in life and coming to know their own value.

    Composed in a conversational and instructive narrative, the text flows at a brisk tempo, which should maintain the readers interest throughout. The information is presented in a well-organised fashion and in language that is easy to comprehend.Mrs. Salandy's ability to communicate with maturing girls on a level they can relate and appreciate enhances the appeal of this book.

    Having taught for the past twenty years, and after gaining first hand, experience by doing workshops and seminars with teenagers and women, Mrs. Salandy's passion for the topic is evident, and should resonate among her target audience
