My thoughts- This book is an addition to the FaithGirlz! collection of books. Philippians 4:8-13 is a great group of verses to use to develop a 90-day devotional for tweens. Tweens are at an impressionable age and this devotional can help guide them on the right course as they grow. As an older reader I even took a lot of good nuggets of information to help me with my growth with God. My tween children enjoyed the devotions I read to them.
There were just a couple of things that I think would help improve the book- get rid of the slang and add an introduction. I don’t like the use of slang, because the words change throughout the years and it talks down to the reader’s intelligence. I think an introduction would help tie the book together and could explain each of the sections.
I would recommend this book if you are looking for a good devotional for the tween girl in your life.
