I am dad of a teenage girl getting ready to go to high school, and I bought the book for her as a gift. So the first time my heart broke, it was for the author, as she so candidly expressed her struggles with the prices she paid for her popularity.
The second time my heart broke was for my daughter because I know that she is going to face the very same temptations as she enters high school and I see and hear the seed of these temptations already as middle school comes to close.
My biggest temptation was to give this book with speech, but fortunately I read through it before I gave it to my daughter and I decided to let the author’s words speak and not add any parental subtext to an already well-communicated message, or mess up an extremely poignant and heartfelt message with some added-on lecture of my own. So I’m watching my daughter read it and letting her absorb it on her own terms. This is proving wise.
As for my third heartbreak, it’s for women I know and even dated. I’m a single dad, and I can’t express to you the number of women who I know or dated that found a path similar to the author in high school and have never been able to authentically get away from it. They’re still trying to be popular in their 30’s and 40’s.
The healing here is amazing, as it always is when it’s truly spiritual, and I hope that teenage girls and older women (with broken teenage pasts), and even a few dads who just want to understand and love, all read this book. Just remember dads, let the book speak, or maybe I should write let Him speak because He’s got an awesome plan for her.
Side bar: I have bought about 15 copies and given them to given them to younger girls I mentor. I pimp it out like Redeeming Love.
