After reading several of the customer reviews of this book, I was a little hesitant to buy it because most of the reviews involved the daughters being no older than twelve. But I assure every mother and daughter that this is a great book for older ages as well as long as the mother and daughter are close-such as is my experience. Even though I am nineteen, this book does not seem childish or the entries forced because we enjoy having this new ability to bond. It also seemed personal at least for us since I write stories, so this was like offering a branch of my life to my mom who doesn't really share in this part of my life.
It is also great because it allows for very short yet heartfelt entries which do not take much time to complete. Another wonderful feature of this book is that is helps both the mother and the daughter relive memories as well as share each other's. It is both light and entertaining which allows for a good distraction and escape from the hassle and occasional chaos of the world. The best part of this book, though, is that it lets mothers and daughters share in one another's lives as well as create new memories and stories together.
I highly recommend this book to any mother and daughter team wanting an excuse or way to bond.Read more ›

I feel like buying 100 of them and passing it out to perfect strangers!!! I can't recommend this enough!!!!! Don't let another day pass.. get it today!! xox
Now comes a new tool for the two generations to communicate about many different issues. It's called Just Between Us: a No-stress, No-rules Journal for Girls and Their Moms by mother-daughter team Meredith and Sofie Jacobs. I've seen more one-sided journals that grandparents or parents fill out to help their children find out more about their lives growing up, but this is the first time I've seen an interactive journal for two.
Some pages are labeled for the mother to fill in, like the one with the questions, "What I wanted to be when I grew up" and "What really happened when I grew up and why." The daughter's corresponding page asks for her to write about three things she might want to be when she grows up and why.
The topics cover so much--school, family, careers, personal likes and dislikes--and there are also plenty of pages where either or both journalers can write about whatever they'd like to talk about. Just Between Us could be fun as an activity for the moms and daughters on their own, or as part of a book group. As part of book group, you may want to define in advance which pages you'll share in a meeting. That way everyone will know that some pages may contain public thoughts while others will be kept private. I recommend Just Between Us for girls aged nine and up.
