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.
