Nick and Zack review books aimed at teen girls

In this first episode of the Teen Center Advisers, Nick and Zack review two books aimed at teen girls: The Quiz Life by Marina Khidekel and Guyaholic by Carolyn Mackler. Since both reviews were negative, they sparked a discussion among the group about what kinds of books are marketed at teen girls, what makes them good or bad, and how they might be judged fairly. The girls in the group recommended some quality teen titles aimed at girls for Zack and Nick to try.
