Summary:
This
devotional for teenage girls is packed full with personal stories from
the author, related Scripture verses, and insightful questions for the
reader. Some topics covered include: Peer pressure, Sex, Dating,
Siblings, Jealousy, Body Image, Self-Esteem, and Growing in Your Faith.
There are forty-one devotions, under six different categories.

Quote:
If you aren't talking to God or talking about
Him, you shouldn't be using His name. The same goes for Jesus Christ,
the "name that is above every name" (Philippians 2:9). He is the
Creator of the universe; the almighty King of kings and Lord of lords.
Can we really justify throwing His name around as though it meant
nothing? - (From the devotion Pardon My "French")

Review:
If
you're like me, I prefer to read devotionals for teens during my quiet
time. I especially liked this one because it was for girls my age, and
I could relate to almost each topic covered. My friend recommended this
book, and loaned me her copy for a week or two. I actually didn't give
it back to her until a month later (sorry, Amy!) because I re-read it
after I was done. Even though I was already aware of most of the issues
that Danae wrote about, this book really opened my eyes and brought up
questions that I had never thought about before. The Scripture passages
that were weaved into each topic fit perfectly, and I'll remember them
for years to come. I really recommend this book for teenage girls who
want to grow in their faith and learn more about themselves and God.

Rating:
(Since this wasn't a fictional novel, I'm grading it differently.)
Recommend to Others: A+
Overall Feeling at the End: A
Connections/Relating to it: A
What I Learned: A

Total Grade: A
