Grade 9-12-- A collection of previously unpublished short stories with a feminist bent, this book by a set of British authors presents an interesting view of a teenage girl's world. "A Family Likeness" takes a girl from the anguish of losing her father to the satisfaction of knowing she can follow in his artistic footsteps. "Different Rules" explores going from being friends to being a one-night-stand. "The Sexy Airs of Summer" considers the age-old chauvinistic view of a girl "asking for it" because of her attitude and dress."Stilettos" presents an interesting and much more practical use for those high-heeled shoes. "Twelve Hours: Narrative and Perspectives" shows how a divorcee's affair with a new boyfriend produces a role reversal between mother and daughter. "India" explores the difficulties encountered when a person who is a product of two cultures attempts to reconcile one with the other in the course of romance. "Hermes and Aphrodight" gives the love affair of the Greek god and goddess and its resultant offspring, Hermaphroditus, a different twist as it tells in folktale style the lives of a man and a woman who lived most of their lives disguised as the opposite sex. "The Year of the Green Pudding" shows how love can often drive all other thoughts out of even a sensible, caring person's mind. All in all it's an engaging collection of stories tied together by a young adult, feminist point of view. These stories will touch a cord in even a non-feminist's being because of the universal realities of being feminine. --Kathryn Havris, Mesa Public Library, AZ
