I remember a Young Adult Chapter book that I am trying to remember the name of.
The premise of the book was that you could achieve perfection by wearing a pickle around your neck, because nothing would be as embarrassing as that so you could do anything.
There was a pamphlet that suggested that a boy do this but the pamphlet stressed that you couldn't read ahead in the pamphlet.

I read a lot of young adult lit with great female characters. But I'm not a teenager anymore and would like to find something analogous for 20-something women. So, where are the books about young, intelligent, humorous and/or interesting women? Novels, short stories, memoirs and essays welcome. More information about what I've already read inside.
