Product description

The only audiobook for all self-respecting girls from the team behind THE DANGEROUS BOOK FOR BOYS 'The Daring Book for Girls' is the manual for everything that girls need to know -- and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! There have been pale imitations of our 'Dangerous Book for Boys' trying to create the same for girls. But nothing has achieved that same feeling of freedom and adventure that the 'Dangerous Book' had in abundance. But now 'The Daring Book for Girls' will fill that gap. It is a real daring book written by real girls for real girls. And what real girls want, just look at their comments on-line, is adventure, excitement, and just as much danger as the boys. So here we present to you Famous Women Spies and Pirates, Women Who Changed the World, How to Make and Fly a Kite, Seven Daring Wonders of the World, How to Survive in the Wild, and how to try to begin to understand why boys show you they fancy you by pulling your hair. The only cooking you'll find in 'The Daring Book for Girls' is cooking over a fire, in the wilderness, while your friends tell you ghost stories to scare you witless!

She has been a camp counselor, an historian, a blogger, a musician, a professor, and is the author of several books, including The Truth Behind the Mommy Wars.
