Every teenager needs to read this book. I wish I could have when I was younger. I buy this book for all my kids in my ministry if they agree to read it.

I have had all three of my teenage sons read Joe's book before they started dating. All three enjoyed it and really benefitted. It is a great preparation tool for teenagers. Thanks Joe!
Pure Excitement Feb 28, 2003
I read this book a few years back when, as a Christian, i was really struggling with with keeping my mind off of girls and sex. After reading this book it totaly changed the way i look at girls. It kinda gave me a discust for premerital sex. As a result i was able too treat girls like real people, and not objects. Now when i began to think of girls as people i was able to have awesome friendships with them. My thanks to Joe White and all the teens who shared thier stories in the book.
Incredible advice for teens everywhere---a must read! Jan 26, 1999
This book is absolutely amazing! It contains all sorts of advice for teenagers on sex, love and dating--in a Christian context, which is the best part. It is so hard to find a book that looks at teen relationships from a Christian point of view, but this book is a great one. It contains all the advice you'll ever need to know on how to make sure your love life is what God wants it to be. This book is a must-read for all Christian teens!
A great and deep book! Jan 10, 1998
As far as books that help you, this is my favorite and I have read MANY! This book gives it to you straight. Bottom line is that if you want an AWESOME marriage, you better stay away from all this junk the world puts out. I have a hard time in that and this book was excellent in that area. I reccommend it to all teens that have this problem as well as any who don't have to worry about it. IT'S AWESOME and really gets into scripture to see what it says about sex and all.
