An also recommended read from me would be "and the bride wore white" by Dannah Gresh.
I initially purchased this book for my daughter, and I preread it in one night. It was so good: the information is written in such a memorable way, and it applies to preteens through womanhood. (I'm 39.) I intend on buying copies for the preteen and teen girls in our church, because I wish I had known then what I know now.
Do not be at all discouraged with the small size of this book; good things come in small packages!
I really enjoyed the fact that she didn't tell the reader exactly what to wear; however, she pointed out what to cover up. Many other books that have dealt with this particular issue have "told" what clothing is exceptable and what is not. Dannah Gresh allows the reader to use her godly discretion in this area.
I would definitely recommend this book to any young lady.
I only gave it four stars because I feel the author needed to make plain just what it is that guys are doing when they "check out" girls. As they say in "Every Young Man's Battle", guys are engaged in visual foreplay with the girls they are lusting after. They get aroused while looking and then bring up the memory of you later when they masturbate. It is not Dannah's style to write so bluntly, but girls need to know the truth about how they are being used when they dress revealingly.
