From the Publisher:

Selected by New York Public Libraries for the "Books For The Teen Age 2003 List", the best titles published for teenagers, ages 12-18.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8-Up This informative and entertaining title presents young women with an opportunity to find out more about some out-of-the-ordinary jobs. For each occupation, a woman describes what it is about her career that she enjoys, how she came to choose it, skills needed, a typical day, favorite and least favorite aspects of the job, hours, training, dress code, and work environment. Some of the fields covered are Egyptologist, dolphin trainer, publisher, Disney imagineer, special agent for the FBI, wedding planner, stuntwoman, fashion designer, and fighter pilot. Additional resources are listed for each one. All these women love what they do, and admit that money is secondary. (There is no mention of salary or even starting pay.) There is also a discussion of attaining your dream job, then losing it. The second part of the book focuses on helping readers learn about themselves, define dreams, and set goals. Though some of the careers highlighted here require more than just formal school training, they bring to the table options that many teens might not even consider. -Nicole M. Marcuccilli, Glenview Public Library, IL
