Synopsis from Goodreads:
Boy meets Girl; Boy wonders what in the world Girl is talking about and how he will ever keep up. Girl wonders what is wrong with Boy. Enter, "Waffles and Spaghetti"-every teen's guide to figuring out the opposite sex and understanding and valuing our unique differences.
In a pivotal time of their development and social lives, teens are left to try and understand one another without much guidance. The purpose of this book is to help better understand themselves as well those from the "alien gender."
Guys' brains are like waffles-they keep their lives compartmentalized in boxes. Girls' brains are like spaghetti-everything in their life is connected to everything else. This book for teens includes brain development, social habits, differences in emotions, and relationship building skills for teens to develop early in their life. Loaded with humor and fun examples, this is a great way for teens to learn about healthy relationships with the opposite sex.
I thought this was a great book. It's full of humour, and I love the way it compares male and female brains. I think this is a great book for teens. It teaches you how the opposite sex thinks in a way that isn't boring at all. I should point out that this is a Christian book with some references to God and the Bible, although it's not overly loaded with religious stuff.
I think a lot of teens would really enjoy this book, and it has a lot of things that will help you communicate with and understand people better. Some of the stuff seems like common sense after you read it, but you may have never thought of it that way before.
I really loved the comments between the author (Eastham) and the editor that was left throughout the book. They were really amusing. The entire book was a lot of fun. It teaches you things while keeping you entertained.
