At times like these I really miss bookstores where you can go in and take a look at the book before buying it.

I am a family counselor and I recomend this book for my teenage clients and their parents. It is full of comfort. Like a big sister whose just been through all the trials of being a teenager herself, Amanda is able to offer a perspective that parents and other adults can't. The formate is helpful and user friendly. The reader can look up any topic in the contents and read one page or many on subjects ranging from boys, to peer pressure, to parents. This book encourages girls to listen to their own voice instead of following the crowd. It encourages each girl to make choices that satisfy themselves.

Be True to Yourself : A Daily Guide for Teenage Girls, is a treasure. It is an important and powerful book; a book that every teenage girl should read. Amanda Ford's writing style is simple, honest and very real. You know she is speaking from her heart and from her own experiences. This is a book with integrity. It is one that the reader can open to any page and find inspiration and guidance. Like Sarah Ban Breathnach's "Simple Abundance," Be True to Yourself has a daily message. The book will never become outdated and it can be read day after day. Each page is like a precious gem that shines on its own. There is no gift you can give that will help a girl more during her teenage years than Be True to Yourself. It will become her best friend and companion.

Format: Paperback
I bought this for my 13-year-old. Even though the reviews were very positive, I worried about how successful of a gift it would be as my daughter is a no-nonsense girl who does not like fluff or mushiness. But she loves it! She reads it faithfully every day, and it's been a great conversation starter as she tells me about the "lesson" of the day. For her, it's just the right mixture of straight-forward talk and sensitivity without being to childish.

Overall, I was disappointed with this book. After reading the description and even looking Inside the book on Amazon, I was looking forward to giving this book to my daughter as she begins junior high. After reading several passages I'm tempted to return in instead. Another possibility is to read the entries myself and use them as scenerios to talk through with my daughter so that if she runs into a similar situation, she has the tools to make the best decision for her.

The book had several light entries such as the suggestion to clean your room before the school year starts "will clear your mind and get you ready to jump into a new school year". But there are many other entries of a more serious nature that I didn't appreciate the author's guidance.

One entry on flirting encouraged girls to flirt and be proud of it, including a line that she regularly flirted with every guy even when she had a boyfriend.

On drinking - while she does include good suggestions such as Be Careful!, control yourself when drinking and don't go over your limit as well as a list of possible negative consequences of drinking she also makes light of the situation by stating "if you puke you've had too much."

Sex- She spends seven days in a row talking about sex and while I again appreciate some of her advice "you are your own person - follow your own schedule and your own comfort level." She also talks about writing a commitment to yourself and listing reasons for that commitment but she suggests you revisit this commitment as you grow up and change it with your new decisions. To me, it implies you will be more comfortable with different sexual actions as you grow up and your boundaries will lower.

Format: Paperback
I love the day-by-day style this book is written in, and the simple, page-long answers help so much with the complicated questions a girl can have at this time in her life. I personally have made it a habit to read the day's advice on my way out the door to school, and it's really helped me to improve my outlook on life. It's also nice because it gives advice on some akward topics that a girl can be embarassed to discuss with her parents. The only downside is that some of the advice is pretty obvious, and simply common sense. Overall though, I highly recommend it to any confused teenage girl like myself. =)

Format: Paperback
Being a teenager in today's world is difficult, but with this book it makes our lives a bit more bearable. Teenage girls are bombarded with "perfect body" images all over the media, which creates a warped body image, and are pressured to have a boyfriend and receive good grades. Be True To Yourself has a worthy piece of advice for every day of the year. It includes party ideas, advice on school, parents, popularity, and boys, self-esteem boosters, perspective on life, and reassurance that everything will turn out right in the end. Amanda Ford's witty writing went straight to my heart, and at the final page of this book I felt like I knew her personally. This book's helpful hand helped me through many tough times, and I recommend for every teenage girl to read it also.
