Some of the books recommended are not ones that I would read to or have my children read. I do not think the characters are worth being exposed to but there are a lot of other options from the extensive list that is provided.
I found my notebook that I took notes in for this book. One example of a really poor suggestion on the author's part is a book written by Madeleine L'Engle - "House Like a Lotus." At one point, the auther of "Honey..." writes about how the book is not good and compares it with Judy Bloom's infamous "Forever" (a book which was banned at my school library going up). In the back of the book, "House Like a Lotus" is in her recommended reading section. I was confused.
She also recommends Pear S. Buck's "The Good Earth." I read "The Good Earth" in college. Because of the heavy subject matter I would not recommend it for a teen. The author also recommends the Harry Potter series. Yes, I read these books because I am an adult who is strong in her faith. I did read them so that I wouldn't be considered (to paraphrase author of "Honey...") an ignorant Christian that won't read a book just because of a misunderstood email. I read the "Potter" books and felt as though they glamourized witchcraft. The author says it is the classic good -vs- evil. However, I would argue that it is evil -vs- really evil. The author compares the "Potter" books to those written by Tolkein or C.S. Lewis. The caveat is: Tolkein and C.S. Lewis were men of faith. J.K Rowling stated in an interview that she thought of Dumbledore as a homosexual while writing the books.
These are just a few of the reasons not to trust this book. I am saddened as I really wanted to like "Honey For A Teen's Heart." I have yet to find a book as thorough as this, but that has a higher moral compass. Instead I will rely on word of mouth from trusted friends with a stronger core values.
