"Adults may mean well, but do they really get everything you're facing as a teenager? The pressure to drink and party, cheat on that test, or give in to that guy? How about the devastation of losing a friend, parents divorcing, or low self-esteem? Who can better relate than your peers?"
Really? This sentiment goes against everything taught in Titus 2 about older women teaching the younger women. It also paints parents and older mentors as out of touch and "uncool" and unable to relate, even though they very likely "get" exactly what their teen is going through because they've been there themselves and have learned from their mistakes. God works through families, and wisdom comes not from following our peers, but from looking to those older than ourselves.
The devotionals in this book may be helpful in some capacity for teen girls to hear others' stories, but peers are not the best, nor Biblical source of wisdom and I absolutely hate the marketing attempt here. Teens are told through every outlet in our culture that their parents can't possibly relate or know what is going on in their lives or aren't cool enough to give the best advice and that the older generations are dull and offer nothing. That is antithetical to what the Bible teaches about families, mentors and getting wisdom and they should not be getting that message from a Bible devotional of all things.
Teens writing to teens, yet I am 51 years old and I am inspired by its content. Keep these fresh ideas coming.

This is a devotional that helps me realize that I am not the only girl going thru some challenging timesPublished on June 23, 2013 by Pam Campbell
A girl to Girl Devotional is an ok book but I feel like it's missing something. It doesn't really involve that much Bible study in it. I think that is really important.Published on January 18, 2013 by doting grandma
