‘Girl’s Guide’ worthwhile gift for soon-to-be grads

A swell review from On the Shelf:

They pop up like dandelions every spring: guidebooks for the graduate.

Whether junior is saying goodbye to her high school pals, facing the job market with a philosophy major or simply moving to first grade, publishers purport to have a product for everyone.

Most of the books feature a compelling cover, fit easily into a gift bag and aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. “The Girl’s Guide to Absolutely Everything” is the exception, and a perfect present for this year’s crop of co-ed grads.
