“Amber’s Guide for Girls” “covers petty topics” and “asks meager questions,” teenage reviewer says

Amber Mariano’s new book Amber’s Guide for Girls pretty much sucks, according to a reviewer. The only surprise there is that someone actually took the time to read it.

Free-Lance Star correspondent and high school sophomore Jordan McDaniel gives Amber’s book the big thumbs-down, basically eviscerating it. Although Jordan writes that Amber’s “book has good ideas on how to reach your dreams, … she also covers petty topics such as music, fashion and being a kid.” The book’s “chapters are very short and have generalized information; there are inspirational words but nothing new.” Somehow, that’s not surprising.

Worse, “she repeats herself throughout each section.” In addition, “She tries to create a ‘reflection’ area after each section in order for the reader to decide what was important and what she learned, but Mariano asks meager questions that add little to the book’s content.”

Is there anything valuable at all? Amber does write about “dealing with fame. Not many people talk about how their lives change with stardom, or about how they try to deal with everyday happenings on top of newfound glory,” Jordan writes. But best of all, the review tells us that Amber “Mariano employs pictures and different fonts throughout.”
