Seems great for some girls but not for all
on September 7, 2013
Having purchased and read this book, it is my impression that this book/magazine is great for many tweens who may be feeling less than confident about themselves. However, I purchased this book for my 10 year old daughter who is seeing her body go thru changes - yet she is very grounded, has great self confidence, and is mature in her faith. She just didn't understand the book - she understands why some kids might be having a hard time and could use this book as a confidence booster and to learn to place their fears in God. But since she already does that - many of the ideas/concerns expressed in the book were foreign to her. I ended up putting it away so that she wouldn't continue to read it and get ideas that would encourage her to worry about things she has never thought about.
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Oh, one more thing - it was published in 2006 and I think some of the info about computers (ex IM-ing and MySpace) is outdated.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.
