Perfectly Unique: Praising God from Head to Foot Paperback – September 8, 2012
"Warlight" by Michael Ondaatje

In this attractively packaged book targeting preteen and teen girls, Downs hits on multiple issues—self-image, eating habits, false ideas, serving others, and handling the tough things life throws at you—and delivers up practical advice grounded in the Bible and iced with humor. Each chapter focuses on a part of the body (hence the subtitle) and relates it to things like keeping your mind pure, focusing your eyes on the right things, and letting your feet carry you where God wants you to go. Each chapter ends with “Chew on This,” an application type of exercise to make the chapter personal. Young women who are concerned about developing their internal character and becoming stronger Christians will gravitate to this beautiful and breezy title that deals with serious issues in a compassionate manner. The book should also find a strong following in Bible study groups for teen girls. Grades 7-10. --Melissa Moore
About the Author
Annie F. Downs is an author and speaker based in Nashville, Tennessee. Flawed but funny, she uses her writing to highlight the everyday goodness of a real and present God. Annie is the author of two books for teens: Perfectly Unique, a spiritual growth book for high school and college girls, and Speak Love, a challenge to women on how to use their words to make a difference in the world. By weaving together personal stories, humor, and Scripture, she invites the young women reading to experience fulfilled lives with a God who made them on purpose and loves them deeply.
When she's not working on books, Annie spends her days writing all over the internet- blogging at AnnieBlogs.com and (in)courage.me - sharing truths about her life in Nashville as a single Christian woman and the stories that are woven into each day. Annie also loves traveling around the country speaking to young women as a Girls of Grace speaker as well as at other retreats and events.
Annie is a huge fan of singer/songwriters, burritos, her community of friends, and sports of all kinds.

The only thing I would recommend is that you carefully consider the character, maturity, and age of your daughters before reading this book. ONLY because it talks, very briefly and very appropriately, about staying sexually pure. It's a topic to talk about with your girl(s). My daughter was not ready to talk about this when she turned 12. She IS ready now that she's turning 13. So be mindful and aware and either choose to read it before her, or read it WITH her. I plan to use it to start a small group girls Bible study. It's my hearts desire for girls to grow up valueing themselves and how incredible they are and to STOP trying to mirror anyone else.
Thank you, Annie F Downs, for feeling the burden, and writing this book. I, myself, took a lot from it and saw myself differently as well.
