A big night out can be graduation, a prom, a family wedding, confirmation, or Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Whatever the occasion, it is a time when every young person wants to look her (or his) best. This is the book that has it all – tips on planning for the big day, a countdown for getting ready, how to look great in photos, a common-sense guide to party manners, and sound advice about making sure the evening is safe as well as fun. It provides a get-ready plan, the scoop on the comfortable versus excruciating shoe debate, what to do if a zipper breaks, and of course how to accept a compliment gracefully.

Jeanne Beker, the mother of two teenage girls and fashion guru extraordinaire, writes wisely and sensitively, affirming that realities like a budget or non-model looks are no barrier to feeling and looking good. You’re on a budget? Scour vintage stores or your favorite aunt’s closet. You don’t look like a model? Take pleasure in finding your own style.

From the big question of what to wear to the essential question of how to get home safely, this is a book that’s sure to make a big night out a treasured memory.
