Review

I think many young women would enjoy this book and find a lot of helpful advice in it. For me, parts of it were helpful and other parts weren’t as helpful. I thought the book might have been more helpful for someone younger, probably mid to late teens.

I was interested to hear what the author had to say about some of the lies, especially: “When you don’t look ‘presentable,’ hide” and “Strong women cry only in the bathroom.” I try to be open to learning when I read a book, and with this one, I did learn some things, but I felt like some of the lessons were ones I’ve already learned.

One thing I found interesting was her answer as to whether or not God ever gives us more than we can handle. She said that the truth is God does give us more than we can handle, but it’s not more than He can handle and we are supposed to lean on Him.

I appreciated the author’s refreshing honesty in the stories she tells and the advice she gives. The writing style is friendly and conversational. And I really do love that cover! It’s one of the prettiest I’ve seen.

This book was definitely worth reading for me since I learned some helpful things from it. But I think some people will get more out of it than I did.

 

 

I received a copy of this book from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
