The layout of this devotional and style of writing is excellent. I think the stories are engaging and thought provoking. The third person limited perspective will enable girls to see themselves in the stories while giving enough distance from the story to hear the message. There are a variety of personalities presented and many real-life situations for girls to think about. The stories will often also help girls have empathy towards others facing difficulties they aren't experiencing themselves.
While I think this is a well-written, thought provoking devotional, be aware that not all pre-teens and even young teens will be ready to discuss some of the topics. It would be a good idea to read through the index and peruse the topics and decide if this is a good fit. Some of the topics are a little heavy and while important to address, you will want to make sure they are reflecting your own family's values with regards to thing like boy/girl relationships, alcohol, etc.
I personally am also cautious about how much I push the idea of dating and boyfriend/girlfriend on my daughters. While we do talk about their future and dating to a degree, we approach the idea of relationship without a heavy emphasis on dating, more on building friendships. Because of this I am going to wait to have my own pre-teen read this. I still highly recommend this devotion, but do use discernment before giving this to a pre-teen/young teen in your life.
The book has 52 readings, which contain a Bible verse, a short story, seven questions, and a prayer. A girl can answer one question per day, as the book outlines, or at her own pace. This book would be a good Bible study for a mom and her daughter to go through together.
The characters in the short stories are drawn with realistic feelings. They aren't perfect people. They break the rules, complain, feel insecure, and don't always treat others right. They come from all different backgrounds; some are from troubled homes, others are in traditional families. I appreciate the effort the author made to write these stories with realism and compassion. Even if a girl reading this book can't relate to the situation being described, I believe these stories and questions will give her greater understanding for peers in different situations.
The discussion questions help a girl examine her own situation and apply God's Word to her problems. I like that in each section, the author writes a question that helps a girl come up with a game plan about each issue. If a girl applies these questions to her daily life, her faith will be strong in the challenging teenage years.
I chose to review this book because I thought it would make a good Christmas present for my eight-year-old daughter. After reading the book, I think the subject matter is more appropriate for girls ages 10 to 14. I will hide it away and plan to study this book alongside my daughter when she's a little older, and I will buy a copy for myself as well.
