There are 30 quizzes in Becker’s second quiz book for girls, the first being The Quiz Book for BFFs. By doing these fun exercises together, friends can find out how well they know one another. Answers transpire after using math, art, dance, conversation and yoga. Using simple addition and code, girls can find out if they are destined to remain friends. The “Drawn Together” test asks readers to complete illustrations. There are “Fill-in-the Blank” stories to finish, questions that need a “Meh” or “Eek” answer, and a brain chart to divide up. Not every test is about boys, clothes and make-up. Instead, the author includes information about personality, sports, goals, and successful woman in history. Although these tests are not to be taken seriously (if you have a ballerina bun, you keep everyone on your toes; if you wear a French braid in your hair, you have a twisted sense of humour), they do allow silly interactions among friends. With the exception of the dance and yoga chart, most of the black and white illustrations that appear on each page are decorative in nature. The girls, who are cartoonish in style, represent different ethnic groups. This book could be used with groups of friends at a sleepover or a birthday party, or by an individual who just wants to get to know herself better.
