As any mother, aunt, grandmother or friend can attest, growing up is hard...especially for young girls in today's society. Not only do the rules seem to change daily in regards to clothing, music and books, but the simple art of making friends changes as well. Being cool is a day to day struggle, and boys....well, it's safe to say that boys are always a mystery! Thus comes into play the book, "Between: A Girls Guide to Life." This book addresses not only the subjects of dressing cool, being popular and fitting in but it also addresses how God fits into a girls life and how He can make all the difference in the world when it comes to feeling more secure and being happy with the "you" God created. Through its well thought out sections, a young girl finds guidance, understanding and advice in easy to understand language and real life examples.
Separated into three chapters entitled: "You," "Others" and "God," this book is not only easy to navigate but easy to comprehend as well, for both growing girls finding their way in life and their mothers/loved ones as well. I was especially impressed with the down to earth, common sense approach in the section about "mean girls." As mean girls are a "given" part of any child's life, this section offered some every day examples and easy to apply advice, something that is absent from many "teen help" books on the market today.
Though this book was written for mothers and daughters as a stepping off place for discussion, I can see how it could easily work equally as well as a gift from a loving aunt, grandmother or even family friend.Read more ›
I can definitely see that this book could help those girls who are struggling with issues and/or newer believers and I love all the bible verses - they're great nuggets of wisdom. The book also has a neat format (magazine layout) aimed at Tweens.
Oh, one more thing - it was published in 2006 and I think some of the info about computers (ex IM-ing and MySpace) is outdated. The warnings are certainly still appropriate though.
I would buy this book for any girl in this age group. The magazine style and topics are a sure-fire winner with them. I often find girls in my class flipping through my book and reading it on their own. I would like to purchase one for everyone in the class but then they would know all my class lessons!
