Book Review

A Girl's Guide to Life: The Truth on Growing Up, Being Real, and Making Your Teen Years Fabulous! by Katie Meier

My fifteen year old daughter has devoured this book, in fact she has read it several times. My soon to be 13 year old daughter has read parts of it as well. Both give it 5 stars.

The practical advice is from a Christian perspective, I like that it doesn't gloss over the sin and temptations that young people are facing these days. This book addresses peer pressure, friendships, boy/girl relationships, beauty/ fashion and a whole lot more.

Katie Meier shares some experiences from her own life, that really helps young people know they are not alone, that all grown ups have experienced this thing called "adolescence", even their parents. The book addresses misconceptions that young women face and what the truth is really is all about. Lots of relevant information, good for mom daughter discussions.

My oldest daughter did think that the title sounded too young, but after she looked at the table of contents she was interested in reading it.

This book was supplied by Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
