A companion to 33 Things Every Girl Should Know, Hands On!: 33 More Things Every Girl Should Know, edited by Suzanne Harper, offers ""Skills for living your life from 33 extraordinary women."" Colonel Eileen Collins suggests that girls ""Be prepared and you won't be scared,"" then goes on to discuss the importance of developing a sense of adventure and curiosity, and taking risks; Lois Lowry, in the form of an anecdote, urges readers to ""Write your name on a wall""; and Sara Moulton, former food editor at Gourmet, describes all the things that fell into place for her in pursuit of her dream, in ""What I Learned in Cooking School."" A thoughtful design and pithy headings make this an easy book to dip in and out of. ( Feb.)
