From the Back Cover

How many times have you heard grown-ups say, “Just be yourself”? But how can you be yourself when that self always seems to be different—depending on where you are, who you’re with, or what you’re doing? Your parents see you as their little girl and your friends think you’re a cool chick … while you feel like a big geek who can’t do anything right. And that cute boy in math? Who knows what he’s thinking! If you think it’s easy to say “just be yourself” but it’s not so easy to do it, then this book is so for you! It will help you figure out who you really are deep down inside. You’ll learn to be that person no matter who you’re with through surveys, helpful tips, and places to write down your thoughts. You’ll learn to be the young women God created you to be! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I was looking for a devotion my ten year old could do in the morning alongside me. This is just perfect. The negative review below has nothing to do with content and it's sad that it brings down the rating of the actual book. Girls have so much to worry about today. Little ten year olds are developing bodies and receiving very flattering attentions of older boys. Without a positive, healthy view of her beauty within, these attentions can bring the feeling of acceptance every girl so desperately craves.

Nancy Rue takes the reader to camp with a girl named Molly. Molly is your average tweenie with a good heart who struggles between doing what's right and making other kids like her. There are no huge adult-type issues here; just internal dilemmas all girls face. It helps the girl know who she is on the inside so she can make good decisions. I am glad my daughter is leaning this now before she has to face the adult issues like parties, sex, or getting into a car with someone who's been drinking.

This is so relevant I am planning to use it in a small group of 9-12s at my church. It is an awesome format that lends itself to small group studies.

I have been using this book as a tween bible study with 4 girls ranging in age from 8-12. All are enjoying the study, the quizzes and special projects. It is aimed at helping girls have authenticity in all situations.

This book has everything!!! It has really helped me a lot. It even shows you how to make your bedroom your own! The girl in the book, Molly is JUST like me. She is a great example to tween girls. Please buy this book! You will be glad you did!! The money is SO worth it. Lately, I have really had a case of the Who Am I`s. This book helps me find who I truly am inside and feel good about it. This book also tells you to set aside 1 hour every week to do something you really enjoy doing. I REALLY like this idea. This book also tells you to make a collage for your bedroom by looking through magazines and finding stuff to make YOU happy, not anyone else. Then, you look at your collage and say: This looks like a person. You fill in the blank. I am SO going to do that with my new room. After reading that book, I feel really good about my true self. I hope this review helped!
