Guys are Waffles, Girls are Spaghetti is not your typical teen advice book. Chad Eastham brings to like the factual differences in both genders as well as the similarities. Throughout the entire book there is humor twisted in in such a creative and fantastic way that readers will be prone to laugh at their own mistakes that have been exampled through the book. There are several stories Chad gives about his own self and his own life put there to let you know that, hey, this guy is a real person who isn't perfect, doesn't think he's perfect, and has, at one point or another, been a teenager. Guys are Waffles, Girls are Spaghetti teaches teenagers how to deal with the opposite gender and embrace them as well as explains everything from why girls act the way they do to sex to periods to how to fail at life. One of the most encouraging things for me in the entire book were the actual letters Chad had received that were written by real teenagers and put in the chapters. GaWGaS talked about how it was perfectly fine that I'm not dating anyone at fourteen and it gave me hope that there is a man out there for me but--guess what?--he's not a man quite yet. The fact that Chad holds everything up to a biblical standard makes his words all the more reassuring. I definitely recommend this book for anyone who is, in fact, a teenager....or a dolphin, but you'll get that later.

The author's comments:
Guys are Waffles, Girls are Spaghetti is a book that really changed my view of things. I couldn't put it down but I was constantly being reminded through the book of things that I had done or mistakes that I have made. This book helped me to discover the truth about so many things that I had been struggling with. I know how sappy a lot of this seems, and I'm not usually a sappy person, but Chad helped me create a new outlook on, well, almost everything. I really only want others to be able to read it and be touched by it like I was.
