Teen Survival Guide indeed! Dec 8, 2005
Vicki Courtney discusses real concerns of real teen girls frankly, truthfully and honestly without sounding preachy. I especially liked the chapter on eating disorders and fashion and the assurances that what's depicted as trendy in the fashion magazines is far from reality. She lets girls know that it IS okay to be normal....with a far more accurate portrait of what "normal" really is in today's world where girls are constantly bombarded with messages to be sexy and thin instead of simply enjoying their youth. An excellent resource for Christian parents and their girls, and for anyone else with a daughter. This is a great book for moms and daughters to read together, and would make a great gift tweens and teens. Highly recommend.
Looks like a magazine; offers great advice Apr 1, 2005
Looks like the best of teen magazines but carries real-world advice with a Christian perspective. I really liked this book! It had good, but not judgemental advice on everything from clothes, pierced belly buttons, tatoos and friends to boyfriends, sex and beauty. It doesn't go into explicit details... but it offers solid advice for teen girls growing up in tough times. I think maybe the best section is quotes from teen guys talking about what they wished teen girls knew! I plan to give this magazine/book as a gift.
