Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Caitlin, introduced in Diary of a Teenage Girl (Multnomah, 2000), continues to use her diary as a sounding board. Now 17, she writes, "Can a girl who loves cool clothes and thick, glossy fashion magazines ever learn to accept people for who they really are underneath that veneer? I think, with God, I can." She needs to, since the people in her life turn to her for help with an overwhelming variety of problematic situations. When her psychology class gets to codependency, even Caitlin herself is appalled at the list: "I must admit that over just the last year, I've made myself almost sick with worry about others from time to time-there was my mom and dad and their marriage problems,-Aunt Steph, then Beanie with her pregnancy, Josh just because he's Josh, and for a while I was worried about Andrea, and then Zach with his drug problems, and lately it's been Jenny." Fortunately, just one prayer session with Caitlin is enough to straighten anyone out-including Beanie's abused, alcoholic mother and Jenny with her eating disorder. The diary format is almost too realistic-there is a lot of detail that doesn't move the plot forward, and Caitlin's style is difficult to take in large doses, especially her prayers in screaming capital letters. The teen alternates radically between helpful, caring actions and selfish, childish worries. Some of her decisions (not to date, to become a missionary) are interesting, but complex problems are created and resolved too quickly.

This book, It's My Life Diary of a Teenage Girl, is a true test to see if Caitlin can remain loyal to God, while trying to maintain her friendship with Beanie. After making a few new commitments to God, Caitlin realizes that dating is just not something that she wishes to take part in. She sees one of the results from dating every day when she looks at Beanie, and just wonders how in the world is that girl every going to be able to raise a child on her own. Among all this friendship trouble Caitlin is also helping out with the planning of a missionary trip to Mexico. Read this book to find out the shocking truths of a teenage girl.

This is a great choice to read for any teenage girl. This series is one of the best that I've ever read. Once I get started reading I just can't seem to it down for hours. You can take situations from the book and relate them to your own life very easily. Again, this is a great book if you enjoy reading Christian fiction and are a teenage girl.

This is the sequal of the first book in The Diary Series, Diary of a teenage girl. As you very well know, sequals to any origional book (or movie for that matter) have much to live up to. The second in a series must either meet, or exceed, the job done on the book/movie that came before it. I honestly find that this book has gone beyond the expectitations that were set for it.
I feel that *teenage girl*'s main purpose was for the reader to get to know the characters. Without giving away the entire plot, in this book some very intense things begin to unfold. I HIGHLY recomend this book for any young adult reader (not limited to girls), and can almost promise you that you will gain a significant amount of insight into everyday problems that teenagers are forced to deal with.

Great series for teenage girls. Have good real life situations in them but most importantly God is always there to help the character through their situations. It refreshing. My daughter is 16 and she finished the first series and now is working on the next story line. I wish more Christian fiction was out for teens. They really need it in today's world.

If you like the first book, Diary of a Teenage girl, then you will love It's my life. It will probably answer all your questions all of your questions about the first book. Caitlin is now working at her dad's office. She is raising money for her trip to Mexico. Beanie is not herself because of her pregnancy, and she doesn't want to do any thing with Caitlin. Caitlin is becoming friends with Andrea. One day Beanie was babysitting for Steph's son and he ran in front of a car. Beanie ran after him so he wouldn't get hit, but Beanie got hit instead. When she went to the hospital they found out that she lost her baby. Caitlin felt so sorry for Beanie, she went to visit her every day. That's when Caitlin got the idea that her church should give Beanie a scholarship so she could go to Mexico with their youth group. When they went to Mexico they had a good time until they went to the dump. All the kids there were dirty and hungry. Caitlin felt so sorry for them that when she got back she set up a fund for the dump kids. After school started, Caitlin and Jenny became friends again. That's when Caitlin found out that Jenny has anorexia. What will happen next? You have to read the book you find out.

My favorite part of the book is when they go to Mexico. It was amazing how the explained the kids. The part of the book that I disliked the most was when Caitlin found out that Beanie lost her baby.

I would recommend this book to people that want to get closer to God. It you like books that have real like situations then this book is for you. I hope that you read this amazing book.

Melody Carlson continues her captivating writing in It's my Life: Diary of a teenage girl (book 2.) This book was just as wonderful as the first. Caitlin O' Conner's life never stops being interesting. She has many temptations with her new religion and has problems with her friends. In this novel Caitlin's church youth group goes on a mission to Mexico and there she feels she found her purpose in life, helping others who are less fortunate than her. This mission changes her views on a lot of things and will change yours too. Melody Carlson sucks you in and keeps you in till you reach that back cover and that's when you go buy the next book in the series. Any teen girl will love this book because we can all relate to Caitlin's life. That is why I give it 5 stars, but you must read all of the books in the series in order to get the full effect. But, trust me you'll want to read them all once you've read one.

"Is it just me or is this world going totally nuts?...." Or so begins the life story of Caitlin O'Conner, the main character in the book It's My Life, by Melody Carlson. This magnificent story captures the thoughts and issues of a teenager's struggles to follow God's pathway. "Dear God, show me what you want me to do about things like string bikinis and the like. And show me how you want me to live." (Page 13-Carlson) This quote shows how Caitlin turns her troubles to God in order to achieve peace of mind. Also, it portrays her newfound faith- Christianity. Overall, this book was a great way to convey what teenagers are faced with in today's world.
