Every girl should read this book! I won't fool myself into thinking many boys would spend their time reading it though. Which is fine since it was written for girls anyway. The things written in this book seem revolutionary, but they aren't! They are things we all inherently know but stifle and ignore. We go around talking ourselves into liking these boys that just aren't that into us. And why waste our time on someone that isn't crazy about how awesome we are??
I've selected my favorite chapters that every girl should read to remind herself of how awesome she is and what kind of crap she should never take from a boy.
Basically this one is for the girls :)
"He's just not that into you if he's not calling you": since the book was written in 2004, feel free to substitute texting in for the word calling. If he wants to hear from you he will make an effort to have a conversation with you. So, if you are the one that has to always initiate the chat, he's just not that into you.
"He's just not that into you if he only wants to see you when he's drunk": um, self explanitory! He's only looking for a drunken hookup and you happened to hit that radar. If you respond to those late night texts then you're only promoting that type of situation. And, you are worth so much more than that.
"He's just not that into you if he's not dating you": I completely understand not wanting to settle down. life is super fun and carefree when you are single. But believe me if he thinks you are a keeper he will make sure to actually become your boyfriend. And you deserve to have an awesome boyfriend who wants people to know you are his girlfriend.
Hopefully that little teaser has inspired you to read the book. It's never too late to run out and get it, and hey, I've even got a copy I'm more than willing to share!

**By the way, watching the movie won't help you out on this homework assignment. The movie was adapted to have a story line and a plot-as all movies should-but the book is better described as a self-help book. For real, do yourself a favor and take a peek. What's the worst that can happen?
