Editorial Reviews

Review

“I’m so grateful that Shannon decided to be as honest and real as she is–that’s the only way this book could be as powerful as it is.… God is going to heal in unbelievable ways through this potent work of art and heart!… I can honestly say that this book has changed me–because it gives a clear picture of who Jesus is, who we are as His bride, and why we can’t seem to be satisfied with anything or anyone else.”
–Bethany Dillon, songwriter and recording artist

“Like a steady IV drip, today’s teenage girls get a message of confused and cheapened sexuality. They are desperate for reasons to guard and preserve themselves. Shannon Ethridge gives girls reasons in this relevant and readable book. Every young woman and every young woman’s mother needs to read this book!”
–Sharon Hersh, author of “Mom, I Feel Fat!” and ”Mom, I Hate My Life!”

“A must-read for every teenage girl! Honest and informative, this book is not only highly readable with its true-to-life illustrations, but it’s packed with answers for every sexual situation today’s teens encounter. What a great antidote for the twisted sexual messages our pop-culture continues to dish out. Way to go, Shannon!”
–Melody Carlson, author of Diary of a Teenage Girl series and Torch Red, Color Me Torn

“Shannon writes with a direct, forthright style, yet she remains tactful and kind as she presents her balanced, godly teaching on dating and relationships. Without question, this is a must-read for any young woman who longs to remain pure in her relationship with God, and I suspect this book will very quickly become a staple of small-group studies.”
–Fred Stoeker, coauthor of Every Young Man’s Battle

“This book should be required reading for any teenage girl who has been exposed to the negative influences of the culture through media, music, movies, and fashion magazines. As someone who is in the trenches of ministry to teen girls, I appreciate Shannon’ s candid approach and her willingness to tackle some difficult topics facing our young women. She does a beautiful job of exposing the godless issues of the culture, while at the same time, offering godly solutions.”
–Vicki Courtney, founder of Virtuous Reality Ministries and author of Your Girl: Raising A Godly Daughter in an Ungodly World

“This book is awesome! I will be buying it and reading it with teens that I mentor. I wish it had been available to me when I was a teen.”
–Adrienne Freas, homemaker and Campus Crusade for Christ staff member

From the Inside Flap

Guys Aren't the Only Ones Fighting a Battle for Purity.

The world you live in promotes sex as the answer to just about everything. The pressure to go along with the crowd is greater than ever before, and it's easy to compromise in little ways that are a lot more harmful than they seem. You and your friends may become caught up in destructive relationships or sexual activities without even knowing how you got there. You just want to be normal–to fit in, to be liked, to look attractive to the opposite sex. But are you paying too high a price?
This counterpart to the award-winning Every Young Man's Battle can help you:

· learn how the sexual battle begins in your heart and mind
· understand your hunger for attention from guys
· recognize and avoid the potential pitfalls awaiting young women on the journey toward adulthood and possibly marriage
· find out how the media, novels, fashion, internet chat rooms, and body and beauty obsessions influence your sexual choices–and what you can do about it
· guard your mind, heart, and body against sexual and emotional compromise
· develop a deeper, more satisfying level of intimacy with God

Whether you have so far protected yourself emotionally and sexually, feel that you've been robbed of your purity, or have given in to temptation in some way, this book can help you achieve or reclaim sexual integrity. It can also guide you through the temptations and pressures of young adulthood while demonstrating how you can live your life to the fullest–without regrets. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I don't understand some of the reviews this book has recieved. I am now a college student, but I got this book in high school, and it finally answered many questions that other Christian books on the subject had been very fuzzy on, and restored my hope to live a life of sexual integrity. The book is heavily backed by scripture, futher strengthening it's message. Yes, this book is frank. However, it makes the point that ignorance makes one vulnerable. I can also almost guarantee that most young women today will not be shocked by the content. Even though I come from a small, conservative town, I heard about sex every day in high school, and don't think it's not talked about even in middle school. There's no escaping it in today's world, and it's better for young women to learn about it from this book, or others like it, and learning what God's word says on the subject, than hearing about about sex in the locker room, and having their curiosity aroused without being told what is right and wrong according to God. Sex and related subjects are not talked about enough in the Christian community, and as a result, many young people are being led astray, simply because no one took the initiative to talk to them about sex. Just because you're too embarrased to talk about sex doesn't mean everyone else is. Who would you rather your daughter hear about it from: you, either through conversation, this book, or both, or from someone at school?

I want to restate that this book is a very powerful tool for godly young women, whether they've already become sexually active, or have only heard rumors of it. I plan on reading this book with my daughter in the future, with the hope of sparing her the pain I have suffered.

I am a teenage girl, and I purchased this book for myself because I am struggling with some sexual issues and I needed a little bit of guidance of how to live a more pure life in God's eyes.

This book was a really great help to me. when I read it, I knew that I wasn't alone, and that it is possible to stop doing the thing that I was stuck in. Before i read this I thought that I was the only Christian who ever struggled with some of these sexual issues, and the book helped me to begin to accept myself because God accepts me even when I fall.

This book was amazing because it redirected my attention to Jesus as the lover of my soul.

This book covers issues such as self image, masturbation, modesty, media, sexual promiscueity, oral sex etc. It also talks about the mental, emotional and physical battle so that now I know how to redirect my thoughts and emotions before I let myself fall into sexual sin.

I was however dissapointed that it doesn't cover a little more about pornography, because pornography is not just a guy thing! but some girls struggle with it as well.

I think this book is amazing, as it certainly helped me, and I would recomend it to other teenage girls, especially those who are struggling.

I like this book very much. Although it was targeted to teenagers, I still picked up the book even if I am a decade older. The main selling point of this book is the author talked about sexuality to teens. Guild the girls through what to do when guys approached to them with sexual requests. Each chapter has a few case studies, and are detailly written with bible verses to support. I usually can easily finished a book in one sitting, but this one I couldn't. After each chapter, I need to put down the book and think what I had done with my past. I finally understood my problem as my memory flashed back. This book made my day every time I read the new chapter. There was so much in the book you will need time to digest. I am single at the moment, and honestly I am desperate for love (marriage). I didn't simply find this book just talking about sexuality, but the way to see your life as a single as well. Great quotes and messages in the book. You will be a new woman after reading it. Recommended not only for teens, but singles.

I am 21 and grew up in a solid Christian home. I was sheltered and protected from sexual situations growing up, so much so that I didn't really see myself as a sexual being. I had been taught about purity and was dedicated to waiting. Imagine my surprise when I found myself quick to compromise in a friendship with a guy. So I bought this book.

This book is not perfect, and I wouldn't recommend it as the sole resource for a young woman seeking to understand her sexuality as a Christian. Even so, it's helpful. I was encouraged by it, even though it is geared for someone younger than me. For most girls my age who have dated before or dealt with this longer, this book will be too young.

Mothers, I would encourage you not to be squeamish about the fact that this book is frank. You don't need to have "the talk" with your daughters... you need to have an ongoing discussion. It was very easy for me to make promises when I was 12 and sex sounded gross anyways, but now I need solid, honest advice and accountability. As hard as you try, your girls will be exposed to all of this (by "this" I mean masturbation, oral sex, etc) and they will only respect you for being willing to talk honestly about it. Being scared of sex is NOT a good long-term plan for purity...believe me. Because my sexuality was not integrated into who I was and what I was willing to talk to God and others about, I was very vulnerable.

Pros
Jesus is at the center, as He should be. This book is chock full of scripture.
This book is honest, practical, and specific. As someone else mentioned, they did fail to address pornography, though the section on masturbation was helpful for me because I was never sure whether it was a bad idea or not (the church does not talk about these things nearly enough!
