Sent: 13 August 2011 04:26 I have been struck by your question since I was a girl in the 50s, in more than one country, and don't remember such books though I spent half my time reading. Emily Post still had a newspaper column, and Ann Landers and Dear Abby addressed issues that were not for girls per se, but my feeling is that we were meant to be in suspension waiting to become women, so advice for women was what we looked at. The message was go straight from secondary school to marriage, model yourself on virtuous pretty young wives. There were also movie magazines and housewife magazines that had odd bits about teenagers, and school classes for girls called different things in different places - Domestic Science, Home Economics. One felt alienated by them but I recall being delighted, along with my mother, about Peg Bracken's I-Hate-to-Cook sort of advice: I Try to Behave Myself, for example.
