I loved this book. I am partial to non-fiction books that read like the author is sitting down having a conversation with me. Nancy writes just like that, which will really appeal to teen readers. I enjoyed the way she gave very practical advice on hygiene, make-up, skin care and fashion, all the while intertwining Bible stories and verses throughout. While providing all of this, she gave girls the tools they need to boost their self-esteem, whether they realize it or not. That's what I call good writing and reading!
