Hang-ups, Hook-ups, and Holding Out by Melissa Holmes and Trish Hutchison (Girlology) is a book for teenage girls about dating (the good and bad).
A fantastic book for teen girls that tells the story of a group of friends as they grow up and start to think about love, sex and relationships. It is part fiction and part non-fiction. So the author tells a story about a girl and her first date, and then backs it up with information or facts that are relevant.
I can’t wait for the updated version of this book. This version was published in 2007 but despite the age, it is still very relevant and good. It gives lots of factual info, and has some great stories that keep you interested! So it is good for teens that find fact-filled books a bit of a bore.
THIS BOOK IS BEING UPDATED
