||How Rude! Teenager's Guide to Good Manners, Proper Behavior, & Not Grossing People Out
||Packer, A. J.
||Free Spirit Publishing
||This is a great book about manners for any and every occasion. Most books on manners are droll do-this-do-that books, but this one is hilarious and still gets the point across. Some of the topics covered in this book are: how to "cope with cliques, handle friendship problems, be a host with the most (and a guest with the best), offer someone your seat, fight fair, answer invitations, deal with rude adults, respond to bigoted remarks, write a letter addressed properly for any occasion, survive a formal dinner..." and much more.
