About The Grumpy Girl’s Guide to Good Manners

An adventure story that is also a guide to proper behavior, this satirical tale takes our grumpy heroine to a week-long boot camp for manners in the middle of the Texas desert. Will she master the art of dining, makeup and nail polish, not to mention electronic etiquette and visual poise? Or will she succumb to her nemesis, headmistress and good manners goddess, Mrs. Green, and become just another well-behaved, well-mannered clone? Edgy, mocking, witty and fun, the book skewers adult pretensions while relating an unusual coming-of-age story with plenty of adolescent angst and attitude.
