...but alas, it was only published in 2011. I'm not a fan of Twilight, but a friend recommended it a few times while I was single and I finally got around to reading it now (some parts out loud to my boyfriend, like the chapter on why normal human males are more heroic than vampires and werewolves).

This book could easily have been called "Why romantic fiction should carry health warnings". I'm not sure absterpritt read the same book that I did, because the book that I read was about empowering women, reminding them that enjoyable fiction contains many convenient half-truths and offering practical advice to young women about how to avoid violent, unstable or just plain unsuitable partners. Saying it perpetuates gender roles is a bit strong! And I'm speaking as someone whose mum was a 70's feminist who banned me from having dolls... (Yeah, that really changed what I wanted in life... Why do feminists think "boys will be boys" but refuse to accept that girls have some hardwiring going on too? OK, rant over)

This book is filled with practical advice, particularly for younger women, but I have to admit I learnt a few things too (I'm in my 30s). I'm considering buying a few copies for friends who are drawn to bad boys and would recommend it to anyone who has a friend, daughter or niece who they think might find some guidance useful.

I also like that 20% of author proceeds goes to a charity called The Girl Effect - I'm all for girls in Africa being given a chance to reach adulthood before being married off and yanked out of school.

In this video I explain why this is a must-read for anyone who loves the Twilight books. I first read The Twilight Saga a few years ago and fell in love with them. This book is a mixture of self-help, psychology and talking about the Bella-Edward-Jacob love story, and how women can learn from these stories. It really helped me find my Edward. I hope you like the video!

I have two preteens who love the Twilight series so I was intrigued to read this book to assess how appropriate it might be for them. It uses the relationships in Twilight to highlight the pitfalls of becoming absorbed into a world of romance in which unrealistic myths abound. Louise Deacon skillfully covers all aspects of relationships including how to become more aware of our human instincts, along with one's own expectations and personal characteristics using a range of written exercises. I will be handing this over to my daughters as food for thought for when they come to choose their future partners.

This book is really amazing. It is a great read and really helpful. You can learn so much about yourself and the thing you do when looking for and having romantic relationships. You will recognise yourself from the stories or certainly someone you know.

I don't think that what is in here applies just to straight girls and women, it can be applied in all romantic relationships whatever the orientation or gender.

It is supposed to be light hearted with a serious message. Surely if even one person ends up avoiding something painful then that must be a good thing.

It aims to empower young women and assist them with the difficult choices to be made when negotiating partner choice.

It is a must read for anyone in that situation. Ergo, everyone!!

A percentage of the proceeds go to a girl-effect charity. check out the info on that and feel proud to improve yourself and the lives of others.

I got this book for my teenage daughter and read it myself first (just to see if it was giving the kind of messages that I wanted my daughter to receive)...and I realised after reading the book that I had unknowingly subscribed to and perpetrated some of the myths about relationships that can and do lead to people making poor relationship choices. I expected to whizz through it thinking "Yep, I knew that"...and yet, a few times during reading, I had pause for thought....this is a very clever book, but written in a light upbeat accessible format making it especially appropriate I feel for young women (and men). This author does not hide behind jargon; she clearly knows what she is talking about and wants to get this message delivered. And it works. Anyone from any walk of life could read this book, it is not overly technical, nor too simplistic. I am very grateful to have found a book to help guide my daughter through the potentially stormy waters of looking for love. Buy it. Read it. Then pass it on. I have.
