The Grumpy Girl's Guide To Good Manners
Author: Rachel Aboukhair
An adventure story and a guide to proper behavior. This satirical tale takes our grumpy heroine to a week-
long summer boot camp for manners in the middle of the Texas desert. Will she master the art of dining,
makeup and nail polish, electronic etiquette and visual poise? Or will she succumb to her nemesis, the
head mistress and good manners goddess, Mrs. Green? Find out what lessons she takes to heart amid
a bounty of delicious mockery, ridicule, laughter and fun.
Rachel lives in Burleson, Texas with her parents, older sister and two younger brothers. When she's not
being grumpy she enjoys playing Scrabble, hiding from people she doesn't like, and avoiding talking
about where she's going to college. She plays the flute and piano, but only because her mom makes her.
She also likes traveling to other countries and reading books nobody else likes, and is currently working
on the next "Grumpy Girl" adventure guide.
