Synopsis: As you grow up, a lot of new, sometimes strange, things start to happen, and it can be overwhelming. You have new responsibilities, new opportunities, and a whole new set of problems, and sometimes it can feel like no one but you can understand what it’s like to be you.
You’re not alone. This one-year devotional is filled with stories about girls who feel just like you. As you read their stories each week and fill in questions about how you think each girl should react, you’ll learn new ways to deal with the pressures around you, embrace the opportunities God has given you, and make choices that give you the opportunity to dream. Through prayer and journal exercises, you’ll also discover there is someone out there who knows exactly how you feel. And he’s more than ready to listen.

My rating: ☆☆☆☆

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

From facing your fears to how following Jesus can change your life for the better, to being accepted and accepting yourself just the way you are, this book has most situations that a young girl would face as she grows up in this world as well as ways the characters have resolved the situation in a loving, Christian way. After each situation, it gives response questions to be answered, thought about, contemplated, and space to write down their answers. Fifty two different scenarios, all with Godly examples of how to face scary situations, also showing how God works in different ways to bring us closer to Him. 

As long as this is a gift freely given and received, it can be such a blessing.
