Reviews - What do customers think about Keeping It Real (Gogirl Series)?

Keeping It Real  Jun 4, 2008
I don't have teenaged girls (or any girls, for that matter), but I have worked with them--junior high and high school.

I wish I had this book when I worked with them.

Heather writes with a clear and teenaged style. In this book, she addresses "gabbing, goals, and goodies." The topics may seem random, but they are the topics on every girl's mind. Boys, of course, what am I doing with my life, and what's everyone else doing with their day. She's honest but not scary. Using real-life examples, stories, and good theology in a language for girls 12-15 or 16, Heather puts it all on the table. She doesn't beat around the bush, which means that they can get into the heart of each matter quickly.

It's not just "don't do this," it's "here's why you shouldn't do this." She demonstrates how doing the wrong thing can hurt you and your friends. And manages to do so without becoming preachy.

As far as the "goodies" section, she reveals how guys think. My parents tried to tell me those things, but I didn't believe them.

I happened to luck out in my innocence.

Not every girl is so lucky.

She presents their way of thinking that makes a girl go, "Oh. Really?" and then watch out for it. At least, that's how I would've reacted if I were a teenager. And let's be honest, in my mind, I'm still eighteen.

I've said enough. So let's recap: this book is valuable. If you have a girl approaching twelve or if you work with teenagers, go ahead and click on that little link I provided for you.

Oh, and this book is flexible. Besides being able to touch its toes, it can be used individually or as a group. Heather provides extensive study questions in the back to get the girls thinking.
Focusing on pressure of being a teen girl  Jul 18, 2007
In Keeping It Real, Jamison uses real-life examples and appropriate biblical text to talk to teen girls about gossiping, goals and sexual abstinence. This book is about what teenage girls go though, with all the gossip, the sexual purity and the goals we want to reach. It talks about how you need to make smart goals like if you want to go to college and not waste your time making out with boys. The sexual purity is the most important part because some girls just give it up when they don't know the guy at all.

Gossiping is the most hurtful thing a teenage girl does and something that can hurt her friends the most. Sometimes you think someone is your friend but they turn their back on you when you need them the most and just go tell them all the stuff you trusted them with.

Girls gossip for many reasons, like getting into a clique, to be mean, to retaliate for hurt feelings, and also to vent. But all these reasons don't justify teen girls' actions since being a gossip can bite her in the back.

Heather Jamison's advice will help you if you're having troubles with gossip, goals or sexual purity. Keeping yourself chaste until marriage and finding the right man is very important because teen girls get pressure from guys all the time, even if it's just to make out with them. Jamison writes in a style that a tween or teenage girl can understand because she speaks to us at our level instead of lecturing us, almost like she's our friend, but in book form.

(13-year-old Mimi wrote this review with her mother's guidance, giving us a special perspective to the info. Thanks, Michele for sharing your daughter's ideas.)

Armchair Interviews says: A good book that helps teen girls stay focused on their goals and get control of all the pressures they face.
