How to knit guide: Yes

Experimental/Classical/Modern : tries for classical but also tries for stereotyping, so people mightn't try crossover stuff or experimenting.

Comments: it's for teens so it's not really my audience, it's also for beginners so again not really me. However there's probably something lurking here for everyone. The stereotyping (with a quiz to determine what "type" you are) is going to date it. Some of the patterns don't look all that practical and I know that's not all that relevant with a teen but mittens with a string while skateboarding looks like suicide to me and the legwarmers don't look like they'd stay up for ballet so I'm inclined to tend towards cynicism rather than acceptance. Still it's not a bad book from it's type.

Buy/Borrow: I'd say it's one that people would probably grow out of fairly soon, even if the how to knit is extensive (pages 3-80 of 165 pages including index) so it's probably a borrow rather than buy
